Klopp asked whether Van Dijk is the Prem’s best defender

Jurgen Klopp refused to say whether he thought Virgil van Dijk was the best defender in the Premier League.

Van Dijk joined Liverpool for £75million in January, in what remains the biggest fee ever paid for a defender.

The Dutchman has helped transform Liverpool’s previously troubled defence.

Many believe Van Dijk to be the best centre-half in England, including former Red Jamie Carragher.

But Klopp was not drawn on whether he agreed.

“I’m not a guy who likes these comparisons,” he said.

“I’m really, really happy with Virgil.”
