Liverpool star feels they deserve to win trophies

Liverpool are locked in a season-long battle with defending champions Manchester City for the Premier league crown

It has been over 25 years since the Reds last won the English league. They are hoping to finally end that barren spell this season. The Reds have been in magnificent form this season. They are currently 2nd in the league with 70 points from the 29 games that they have played. Klopp’s men also boast of the best defensive record in the league, having conceded just 15 goals up to this point. They currently trail Guardiola’s Manchester city by a single point with 9 games yet to be played.

The Reds, however could have very easily been at the top of the table had they not dropped points in their last dew fixtures. They were held to 0-0 draws by Manchester United and Everton respectively in 2 of the last 3 games. The Reds are also active in the UEFA Champions league and will take on Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena in the second leg of their Round of 16 tie. The 1st leg at Anfield ended 0-0. Liverpool and Netherlands defender Virgil van Dijk feels they deserve to win trophies for their performances throughout the season,

“I have a feeling it will [go to the wire], we’re going to give everything we have. They will probably too, and then we’ll see if that’s enough. My dream is to win trophies with Liverpool because Liverpool deserve trophies. We’re close, still in the race, and we will fight until the end.”

On being asked which trophy he preferred between the Champions league and Premier league, he said,

“I can’t choose but I think Premier League would be something special. Especially this year because the race is so tight. It says a lot about our quality if we could do it.

“That’s the unlucky bit for us that they’ve [City] been fantastic throughout the whole season. But we have also been fantastic. I think that’s something great for people who love football to see. I want to achieve everything that’s possible in football. I want to get everything out of myself and not have any regrets when I retire.”

Van Dijk also opened up about Klopp’s impact on the team and himself,

“He’s hard to me, but he also gives me confidence when I need it,” added the Netherlands international.

“We have plenty of meetings throughout the season where he’s definitely not happy with some things and I think that’s a good sign, because even when we only lost one game the whole season there are still moments where we do much better.”
