Liverpool Star Van Dijk Among The Best Defenders In The World

– Boateng

Virgil van Dijk is among the best centre-backs in world football according to Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng.

Former Germany international Boateng has enjoyed a renaissance at Bayern this season, impressing alongside David Alaba at the heart of defence after Hansi Flick replaced Niko Kovac as head coach to guide the Bavarian giants to an eighth consecutive Bundesliga title.

However he feels Van Dijk, now himself a top-flight champion after Liverpool clinched Premier League glory on Thursday, stands apart among the elite.

“He is up there with his consistent performance,” Boateng said during a Bayern ‘Fan-Talk’.

“But I also like [Kalidou] Koulibaly from Napoli. [Sergio] Ramos from Real Madrid has been playing at a high level for a long time.”
