Virgil Van Dijk Shoves Away Fan Who Interrupted Live TV Interview To Ask For Selfie

Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk made his return to the Netherlands national team last night and marked the comeback by pushing away a fan who tried to interrupt his post-match interview.

The Dutch skipper, who was out for 10 months after suffering a serious knee injury in the Merseyside derby against Everton, played the full 90 minutes in a 1-1 draw with Norway.

Van Dijk was on media duty after the World Cup qualifier and giving his analysis on the game when a fan appeared out of nowhere.

The supporter had their phone in one hand and put their arm around him, excitedly shouting "VAN DIJK!".

Van Dijk pushed him away - not overly forcefully but enough to move the fan well out of shot - and his facial expression was priceless.

He also uttered, "Please" before continuing with his answer in the interview.

The 10 second clip has been widely shared on social media, with fans loving the no-nonsense approach from the 30-year-old.

Netherlands played out a 1-1 draw with Norway, Davy Klaassen cancelling out Erling Haaland's opener in the 20th minute.

Van Dijk was back to his imperious best, winning all seven of his aerial duels, completing 78 out of 86 attempted passes and not being dribbled past once.

He did have a moment of discomfort though after suffering a dislocated finger during the game.

He had to have it pushed back into place at the start of the second half but continued to play the rest of the game with his finger taped up.


After the game, Haaland revealed to Norwegian TV that Van Dijk told him he was responsible for breaking his finger.
