De Ligt sends personal message to Liverpool man after Champions League win

Matthijs de Ligt

Matthijs de Ligt sent a message of congratulations to Virgil van Dijk after Liverpool won the Champions League on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds beat Tottenham 2-0 in Madrid, winning the European cup for the sixth time in their history.

Van Dijk plays alongside De Ligt for Holland, where the talented defenders have formed a near-impenetrable partnership at the back.

And the 19-year-old Ajax captain was quick to heap praise on Van Dijk’s achievement on social media, commenting “Big Man” on an Instagram picture of him posing with the Champions League trophy.
