Liverpool Fan 'Proves' Virgil Van Dijk Is Better Than Nemanja Vidic

Liverpool Fan 'Proves' Virgil Van Dijk Is Better Than Nemanja Vidic

Is Virgil van Dijk the best centre back the Premier League has ever seen? That's certainly the theory one Liverpool fan has as he's 'proved' it with his thread of stats.

The Dutchman has been one of the most integral parts of Liverpool's resurgence from a team challenging to be in the top four to walking away with the title, with a lead of 22 points currently and helped them win the Champions League last season.

Since his £75 million move in January 2018 the former Southampton centre back has been considered one of the best of all time in the Premier League, and came second in the Ballon d'Or, with Nemanja Vidic often considered the man who stands in his way to taking the crown.

One Liverpool fan has taken exception to that idea and started a Twitter thread to dispel the idea:

Liverpool Star Virgil Van Dijk Is A 'More Complete' Player Than Nemanja Vidic

published at3 months ago

During his spell in the Premier League, between 2006 and 2014, the Serbian defender won the Premier League title with United on five occasions.

He also won the League Cup three times as well as the Champions League and FIFA World Club Championship whilst building up a partnership with Rio Ferdinand that is well remembered.

The pair were part of Edwin van der Saar's run of not conceding for 14 games in-a-row, still a league record, during their title winning run in 2018/19.

And last year one United fan tried to 'prove' that their man was actually the better defender than Van Dijk with his own stats.

There's no doubt that both men were world class defenders during their time in the Premier League and Van Dijk may even be the better player between the two.

Who do you think deserves to be named as the best ever?
