Virgil Van Dijk predicts who will be future Liverpool captain

Andy Robertson just seems to get better and better under Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool, and it is also very hard to believe that Scotland international took so long to displace Alberto Moreno in the Reds starting XI after he arrived from Hull City back in the summer of 2017.

Because the rampaging left-back is one of the first names on Jurgen Klopp’s team sheet right now.

Andrew Robertson has started 18 games already for the Merseyside club this season, missing just one Premier League and Champions League games, and club teammate Vigil van Dijk thinks he brings more to the team than powerful bursts of energy and pinpoint crossing.

Talking to the BBC, the Netherlands international has paid tribute to Scott’s leadership skills and has backed him to captain the European giants somewhere down the line.

“If he keeps improving he will [captain Liverpool],” said the Dutchman, who was voted in as Liverpool’s new third captain by his Reds teammates earlier in the season.

The Scotland skipper missed the clash against Burnley due to a minor injury and is expected to return to action on Saturday when the Reds visit Bournemouth.
