“Just end up with the Premier League? Yeah? Just? It’s just a small thing, is it? We also won the Super Cup and the World Cup of [club] teams,” Van Dijk said, per Goal.
“In life, there are people that are not always satisfied. They are always looking for negative things in life. That’s just the reality. Either you’re going to think about these things and go on with it and go on with that negative spirit, or you just focus on the good things, and I’m definitely focusing on the good things. We are in a very good situation.
“Close to what we all hope to achieve. Let’s just go for it, enjoy it. Tonight is a big blow but we were playing against a very good side. Let’s focus on ‘just’ the Premier League, because it’s very small, huh?” concluded Van Dijk.
Indeed, ruling out Liverpool from the Champions League ahead of the second league is definitely not a wise though, especially considering the match will be at their own fortress.
