Virgil van Dijk has been named the new captain of Liverpool following the departure of Jordan Henderson.

Following Jordan Henderson’s departure to Saudi Arabia, Liverpool was on the lookout for a new captain and they have quickly appointed Van Dijk.

Speaking to the club website, Van Dijk said, “Of course, I am captain of the Netherlands. That was also a great honor and caused a moment of pride. But to be captain of Liverpool is something I have no words for. I’m going to do everything I can to make everyone proud and happy.”

Van Dijk joined Liverpool back in 2018 and has since made 222 appearances for the club.
