Liverpool news

Virgil van Dijk spoke moments after scoring the only goal in Liverpool Carabao Cup final win.

Virgil van Dijk’s leadership was on full display as he spoke in the aftermath of Liverpool’s 1-0 Carabao Cup final win over Chelsea. The Reds captain scored the only goal of the game in extra-time, but instead wanted to highlight the performances of his team-mates rather than take all the plaudits.

Van Dijk was clearly emotional as he took in all the scenes and jubilation surrounding him as a result of the 118th-minute header, but as a true leader instead took the time to praise the young squad that battled to victory.

When asked what the win and goal meant to him, Van Dijk told Sky Sports: “So much. All the young boys on the pitch, in extra time. It’s incredible, I’m so proud of the team.

“Intense game for both sides, they had chances we had chances. Amazing. First trophy as Liverpool captain, it’s all for the fans so let’s enjoy it. It’s emotion, it’s everything I am so proud of the boys. All of the young boys playing their part in what we achieved today it’s incredible and on to more.”

In Klopp’s final season at Liverpool, Van Dijk elaborated on savouring the moment with his departing head coach. “You should always savour the good moments, this is definitely one of them,” he added.

“Listen, we will never take things for granted and you see today it could have been the other was as well that we lost but we did a job, even with all the problems we have had before the game. I’m so proud, proud to be part of this club and especially proud of the boys.”
