Liverpool defender is faster than Salah, Mane, Neymar and Mbappe
- Van Dijk was the fastest player on the pitch in a 3-2 win over PSG
Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah both reached top speeds of 30.4 km/h.
Neymar and Mbappe enjoyed a slightly better record as they registered 31.7 and 32 km/h respectively.
However, our centre-back surpassed the speedy quartet. Virgil van Dijk reached 32.4 km/h on Tuesday night.
It should be noted that footballers usually show better sprint results when running without the ball.
By the way, Virgil wasn't the only defender that could boast an impressive speed. Gomez and Robertson were also among the fastest players on the pitch.
