Virgil van Dijk says he has achieved nothing yet as a Liverpool player, telling ESPN FC that he ‘”expected a lot” from his move to Anfield earlier this year, while adding there’s something special going on at the club at the moment.
Van Dijk played an important role in Liverpool’s run to last season’s Champions League final, which ended in defeat against Real Madrid in Kiev.

But despite the signs of progress at Anfield during 2018, Van Dijk insists that there has to be more to come if he is to judge his move a success.
“I think I expected a lot from my move,” Van Dijk told ESPN FC in an exclusive. “I’ve expected a lot from myself, to improve as a player and as a human-being as well.
“It has been going well and good, obviously, but in the end we have nothing at this moment other than a lot of improvement and being on the right track.

“But I feel there is something going on here. We have got great momentum at the moment.
“Everyone is feeling good. Obviously we can all still improve a lot of our game, but like I said, there is definitely the feeling that we are on the right track.”
