Virgil van Dijk Reveals What He Wants To Do In Champions League Final Against Tottenham


Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk says the “pain” of losing last season’s Champions League final is driving him and his team-mates as they prepare to face Tottenham today.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid in the 2018 showpiece.

Gareth Bale scored a stunner for the Spaniards, while keeper Loris Karius was at fault for two Real goals.

“I took a lot of experience from it; hopefully I can use that,” Dutchman Van Dijk told BBC Sport.

“Losing a final is painful.”

“Tottenham are a very good team and throughout they have a lot of strength.

“They have a fantastic goalkeeper, two great centre-backs and a midfield that’s been very good. They have Victor Wanyama, who I know from Southampton, and Christian Eriksen, who has been doing it for years.

“Up front, they have players who can make a difference, so we have to be ready.

“But I know they’ll definitely think the same about us. We’re not a nice team to face so it’s going to be difficult.”
