Virgil van Dijk is the third best Player in the world - Chris Sutton

Celtic legend Chris Sutton has revealed Van Dijk is the third best player in the world.

We won't argue Virgil van Dijk has actually transformed Liverpool defence with his ability and leadership spirit. And Chris Sutton has now admitted van Dijk is only behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the world best player.

Speaking with BBC, the Celtic legend reveals van Dijk should be compared with the best and that he can function in any team.

'It may not be fashionable to mention a defender when you have a conversation  like this, but when you look at the difference Virgil van Dijk has made to Liverpool then you can see just how good he is,' Chris Sutton said

'There is not an attribute you need as a defender that he does not have, he is quick, strong, consistent and he does not seem to lose his concentration.'

'He also has tremendous distribution when he is on the ball, and he reads the game so well. He has got the lot.'

'There will be a clamour  for Eden Hazard and other attacking players, and I understand that, but Van Dijk has shown the difference a brilliant defender can make to any side.'

Do you think Virgil van Dijk is just behind Ronaldo and Messi as the world best player?
