Kompany: Van Dijk is the best centre-back in the Premier League ever
- Vincent Kompany is our rival but he appreciates Virgil van Dijk a lot.
- He chooses the Liverpool player as the best Premier League centre-back ever ahead of John Terry and Rio Ferdinand.
- Virgil van Dijk has completely changed Liverpool.
Vincent Kompany was asked to name the best centre-back in the Premier League's history ahead of his testimonial with Manchester City.
Former City player admits Liverpool's Colossus doesn't have as much time on the pitch as John Terry and Rio Ferdinand but what he has done to the team is even more amazing because of this:
"I would bring it back to Virgil van Dijk, he’s not been on the scene as long as Terry, Ferdinand who have been around for a long time but the signs he’s shown in the last few years.
"He's shown if he had been around longer he’d have been at the top for a long time. The Liverpool before Van Dijk and after are a completely different setup. I’ll give him that one."
The Dutch defender joined Liverpool back in January 2018 and the Reds haven't been the same since then. Virgil has already made 78 appearances, scored 8 goals and currently is among favourites to win Ballon d'Or.
