People Can't Believe This Photo Of Lorenzo Insigne And Virgil Van Dijk

People Can't Believe This Photo Of Lorenzo Insigne And Virgil Van Dijk

A picture of Lorenzo Insigne And Virgil van Dijk has online users going crazy on social media.

Van Dijk stands at an impressive 6'3, while Insigne is an entire foot shorter, standing at 5'3.

The photo between the two truly highlights the contrasting height. At certain angles, the Dutch defender looks like a giant, and some, Insigne appears much younger than 27.

And the comments are class.

The Italian international had once told UEFA in an interview that he almost quit football because of his short height - luckily, he continued grafting.

"They used to say I had some talent but was too short. At one point, I wanted to quit football, as the scouts all told me the same thing and I thought it might be futile to continue. Then I had a trial with Napoli and it went well."

The rest of the interview can be seen here:

And it isn't his first time attention has tuned to Insigne's height because of people he's stood next to.

Just last month, photos emerged of the 27-year-old seemingly always paired with the tallest mascot - an occurrence that happened in several games.

Fortunately for Insigne, he's able to offer a skill most players don't possess - a great low centre of gravity.

Despite his size, he's made it to the very top of his game, playing football at the highest level.

Fair play to the Napoli attacker.
