Ready for 'best in world' Messi

Messi  Van Dijk split

Messi Van Dijk split

The Manchester City forward finished well ahead of Liverpool's Virgil Van Dijk in the voting, with City team-mate Sergio Aguero coming in third. We don't defend one vs one, we defend all together and we attack all together as well so we will see.

Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk insisted he is not daunted by the challenge of trying to stop Lionel Messi and Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals.

I think not everybody saw immediately what kind of player hides in this giant body.

On top of his defensive contributions, Van Dijk has added three goals and two assists this season for Liverpool in the Premier League, and another two goals plus two assists in Europe. "I see the players we have, I see the management and the way we play football so it is not really a big surprise but you still have do it and we have to do it on Wednesday." he said. "It's just very special".

Earlier this month, a fan-made Liverpool Twitter account, LFCGlobe, didn't receive the memo of van Dijk's last match against the reigning La Liga champions after tweeting a clip of him playing at the Camp Nou back in 2013.

The 24-year-old England worldwide came out on top from a young player shortlist which also included team-mate Silva, Manchester United's Marcus Rashford, Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold, Bournemouth's David Brooks and West Ham's Declan Rice.

"It is a nice stadium, a historic stadium and for me it was a great experience to play over there", said the Holland captain.

He also became the second Man City player to win the award in a successive year, after Leroy Sane won it last season.

"But I like how my team are dealing with the situation; I'm really proud of the boys, how they deal with it".

"The situation is how it is and I said many times before, we have to enjoy it, show what we have been doing nearly the whole season and keep working hard and never give up".

"I see what we have".

The 31-year-old defender was named in the PFA's Women's Super League Team of the Year and is set to skipper the Lionesses at this summer's World Cup in France.
