Liverpool Star Player Sends Important Message Across After Southampton Win

Published

on

Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool star player Virgil van Dijk had a good time yesterday at the St Mary’s Stadium, and the Dutchman failed to give much attention to the hostile chants from fans of his former club.

Van Dijk joined Liverpool last month and he became the most expensive defender in football history after the Anfield club paid £75M for his signature.

He faced his former side for the first time yesterday when Jurgen Klopp led him and his new teammates to Southampton to play at St Mary’s.

Before the game, his new manager already warned him to be ready for any sort of welcome he will receive from his former club – and the Dutchman obviously took that at heart.

Roberto Firmino scored the first goal in the game before Mohamed Salah made it two before the break.

Obviously, Southampton fans were not happy losing their star man – plus losing the game too.

But the defender felt Southampton fans took things too far, and that the unpleasant reception he received was unwarranted.

He also said he enjoyed the game as he simply chose to ‘just focused’ on the business at hand.

The player also added that he isn’t too excited seeing his former side strugglingint the relegation zone because he still ‘care for the club’.

Hi. I'm Akanni. I grew up with sports, football in particular. It's no surprise why I enjoy the beautiful game. Ask for my favorite team, and I might respond thus: Let The Best Team Win

Hudson-Odoi rejects a new contract

Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi has reportedly rejected the club’s contract offer amid the uncertainties surrounding his future at Stamford Bridge.

England’s youth striker has been in the news for a while due to Bayern’s bid to prise him out of Stamford Bridge.

Despite seeing the Bundesliga Champions reach their asking price, Chelsea have failed to release him. Instead, Maurizio Sarri offered him a five-year contract extension which he immediately turned down.

The winger/playmaker saw just 10 minutes of action in their defeat to Arsenal last night and his future is definitely not in Stamford Bridge.

Mesut Ozil

Embattled Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has been linked with a move to the Chinese Super League by former Arsenal player Charlie Nicholas.

The Arsenal legend thinks this is the best time for the team to part ways with the former Real Madrid star as he has got just little to give to the team.

According to him, Mesut Ozil does not fit the team and should have been the one leaving the club and not Wales international Aaron Ramsey at the end of the season.

Charlie Nicholas is of the opinion that the German international midfielder remains the highest paid player with a weekly wage of £350,000 but has been relegated to bench roles at the club.

However, speculations are that the Gunners boss Unai Emery is desperate to have the Mesut Ozil leave the club as he has failed to give performance equivalent to his weekly take home.

Meanwhile, the former Real Madrid star made it clear that he will not get himself disturbed about the various media speculations but will rather keep his head down to working hard until he achieves the best for himself.

Mesut Ozil has been inconsistent for his side ad most importantly; he has not been able to secure starting roles especially in important games.
