Virgil van Dijk has been confirmed as the new captain of Liverpool FC, with Trent Alexander-Arnold appointed as vice-captain.
“In addition, the club can announce Alexander-Arnold as deputy captain, taking over the responsibility from James Milner,” the statement added.
What Virgil Van Dijk said was uncovered by news reporters.
“It’s a really proud day for me, for my wife, for my kids, for my family. It’s been a special feeling, and I can’t really describe it at this point. But it’s something that I’m really, really proud of “.
However, “It’s just something that makes me very proud, and I will do everything in my power and what I can to make everyone proud and happy with me and the football club.”
“I think that was a big thing that was missing: the consistent level that we showed over the last couple of years was missing. And obviously, everyone wants to make this right. We all feel we have to do this again each and every day, each and every game, with the fans as well.
Additionally, “Obviously I’m captain of Holland; that was already such a huge honor and a proud moment as well. But to also be the captain of Liverpool Football Club is something that I can’t describe at this point.
“But we can be up there again. It’s all about doing it together with consistency, and hopefully we can show it.” he added,
Virgil’s time with Liverpool so far since 2018
