Video: Jurgen Klopp Hilariously Compares Virgil Van Dijk to a Car

Jurgen Klopp hilariously compared Virgil van Dijk to a car ahead of Liverpool‘s clash with Brighton.

The German manager sat down with BT Sport before his side welcomed the Seagulls to Anfield this evening and understandably the Dutch centre back came up.

He’s been outstanding since signing for the club in a £75million move from Southampton in January.

Van Dijk helped them to the final of the Champions League and a strong end to the Premier League season – and he was colossal in their victory over Crystal Palace on Monday.

And much more will be expected from him in a season that many hope will end with Liverpool lifting the league title.

Klopp is obviously a big fan – and compared the Dutchman to a high quality car. An ‘SUWee’ to be exact:

Klopp isn’t wrong. Van Dijk has played like a well-oiled machine since signing on at Anfield and is proving well worth the £75m Liverpool paid for him.
