Jamie Carragher Asks Jordan Henderson If Virgil van Dijk Is Better Than Him
Jamie Carragher, Gary Neville and Jordan Henderson all weighed in on Virgil van Dijk following his 'Man of the Match' outing against Wolves, and it was brilliant.
The Dutch defender was the subject of the post-match talk on Friday night with Henderson giving his teammate a huge complement.
van Dijk kept a clean sheet, produced heroics at the back and got on the score-sheet.
Neville asked Liverpool's captain: "How good is he?"
"He's unreal, to be fair," Henderson replied.
Carragher then chimed in, saying: "Better than me?"
Henderson laughed and Carragher hilariously reacted: "What you laughing at?!"
The midfielder then brilliantly said: "Just a little bit!"
'King Kenny' was also on hand to share his thoughts on Liverpool's No.4.
"Liverpool have had a lot of great centre-halves throughout the years - and Carragher - where does Van Dijk fit in with the all time best centre-backs at Liverpool?" Neville asked Dalglish who replied by saying: "Just behind Carra."
"Just behind Carra..."@GNev2 asks Kenny Dalglish where he rates Virgil van Dijk among Liverpool's best ever centre backs.

"I know you're taking a wee bit of specimen out of Carra but he was fantastic for Liverpool during his time. Virgil came in at a very important time, stamped his authority on it, he's a great presence and he has really produced the goods since he has come in in January," he added.
van Dijk set Liverpool back a cool £75 million but he's repaying his worth with incredible performances.
He's one of the best defenders in the world and a set of remarkable statistics suggest he's easily the best defender in England's top flight.
