Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk Grilled By 8-Year-Olds In Hilarious Video

Virgil Van Dijk has taken part in a funny video with Liverpool's Under-8s squad, and in the process teased an young Everton supporter saying: 'it's going to be a tough year for you again!'
Van Dijk, who joined Liverpool in 2018 from Southampton for £75million (N33billion), has been a revelation for the Reds and beat Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to UEFA's Best Men's Player award in August.

And some lucky Liverpool youngsters got the chance to question the Dutchman, which provoked some brilliant responses by both Van Dijk and the kids!
The highlight of the Q&A video was Van Dijk's continual teasing of an Everton supporter.

After originally being asked about how happy he was when he won the Champions League, the young Evertonian admitted he wasn't happy because of his allegiance to the blue half of Merseyside.

This prompted Van Dijk to say 'it must be very tough', and then later add 'it's going to be a tough year for you again!'

Everton are currently languishing in the relegation zone, in 18th place after eight games, while Liverpool are top of the table.

Also in the video, Van Dijk was forced to call manager Jurgen Klopp by the kids, but unfortunately the Liverpool boss didn't pick up his phone!

He was also asked about his FIFA Ultimate Team, and revealed the Liverpool players who made the cut.

Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Georginio Wijnaldum, Mo Salah and of course the man himself were all selected by Van Dijk.

Other highlights include Van Dijk, 28, saying he isn't good at 'very long running', admitting he doesn't like 'bugs, spiders and snakes' and advising the youngsters not to listen to opinions from 'people you don't care about'.

Liverpool's star centre-back is currently on international duty for the Netherlands - the Dutch captain is preparing for Euro 2020 qualifiers against Northern Ireland and Belarus.
