Dias' remarkable campaign for the Blues has sparked debate between him and Van Dijk, who unfortunately missed most of last season through injury.
But the Portuguese was unable to help his team to become European champions with the Dutchman on the tip of tongues across Liverpool.
They compared their respective Champions League final outings - with Van Dijk picking up the 'Man of the Match' award for his masterful performance against Tottenham.
Don't ever compare Dias to Van Dijk ever again. :sweat_smile: pic.twitter.com/ViDWisdc8d

But I thought Dias was better than Van Dijk?

Where was Dias off there? They really had the audacity to compare him to the great Virgil Van Dijk...

Van Dijk should sue anyone that says Dias is better then him for defamation

Can we stop the Dias/van Dijk & Mahrez/Salah comparisons now? Two of them have Champions League winning medals.

A second tweeted: "Peak Van Dijk is ten times the player Ruben Dias is."
A third added: "Dias this, Dias that, van Dijk kept a clean sheet in Champions League Final. Long way to go for Dias already."
