Ince compared Van Dijk with Cantona
Former Liverpool and Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince compared Manchester United legendary striker Eric Cantona with the Reds’ defender Virgil van Dijk. According to Ince, charismatic van Dijk has a positive impact on the team.
Paul said that when Cantona came to Manchester United he became that last part of the great team. When he first entered the locker room, it immediately became clear what kind of person he was. His presence was impacted on all the players as they felt his desire to win.
According to Ince, something similar can now be observed at Liverpool in relation to Virgil Van Dijk. Yes, Alisson acquisition also became extremely important for Jurgen Klopp’s team. But it was Van Dijk’s arrival that had the most positive impact on the players.
