Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk insists he and the squad are hungry for more success after fulfilling the dream of winning the Champions League.

The Holland captain played a key role in the club’s run to their sixth European Cup with victory over Tottenham almost a fortnight ago, as well as being pivotal as the club reached a record Premier League runners-up tally of 97 points.

Van Dijk was rewarded with the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year award and was named man of the match in the Champions League final in Madrid.

“I’ve had a few days to reflect now at the end of what’s been an unbelievable season,” he wrote on Instagram.

“We achieved great things this season at Liverpool as a team and I feel proud to be part of such an incredible club with this group of players.

“To be European Champions is a dream come true! We are all now hungry for more success and will continue to give all we can to achieve that.

“I’m also excited about the future with the national team and we will look to build on the promising season we’ve just had.

“Thank you for all of your support over the last few months and I’ll see you after a break ready to go again!”

Portugal were back in training on Friday morning at Estadio do Bessa in Porto as the European champions prepare for the UEFA Nations League final on Sunday.

Fernando Santos’ first XI in the semi-final against Switzerland, including hat-trick hero Cristiano Ronaldo, went onto the pitch for the first time since Wednesday’s 3-1 victory at Estadio do Dragao.

Potugal are the only side unbeaten in the competition, after finishing on top of group A3, with two wins and two draws against Italy and Poland, and beating Switzerland to reach the final.

Ronaldo’s side will face in the Netherlands on Sunday in Porto and they will come up against one of the best defenders in world football.


Virgil van Dijk will be leading his nation on Sunday and Portugal defender Ruben Dias said: “No doubt about it, the facts tell you the story. He’s definitely one of the best defenders in the world.”
