Video comparing Virgil van Dijk and Phil Jones attempting skills is so good


Virgil van Dijk has proven himself to be a Rolls Royce defender during his Liverpool career.

Strong, elegant and as smooth as silk, the Netherlands international has mastered his craft and is a joy to watch.

Football fans will have missed Van Dijk showcasing his skills before Liverpool’s 2-1 win against Wolves on Thursday but thanks to LFCTV, they are now here for us all to enjoy.

The 28-year-old is casually seen doing keepy-uppies before crashing the ball against the crossbar like it was nothing.

Honestly, you could stick Van Dijk in the No.10 position and he would probably do a good job.

The Liverpool centre-back needs to give Manchester United’s Phil Jones some tips.

Back in August, a video of Jones trying - and failing - to perform skills before United’s International Champions Cup game against AC Milan went viral.

If you haven’t seen it already, it’s tragic. We’re still wondering what Jones was attempting.

The videos of Van Dijk and Jones have now been put together to form one hilarious video.

Liverpool fans are so fortunate to get to watch Van Dijk each week. Look at what Man United supporters have to put up with.

Jones has endured a difficult season for the Red Devils, being limited to just two Premier League appearances.

The 27-year-old was drafted into the starting line-up for the recent visit of Burnley to Old Trafford but it was a tough evening, with United falling to a 2-0 defat.

Per Sofascore, Jones completed just one of his six attempted long passes, lost possession 15 times and committed two fouls.

One night later, Van Dijk was helping Liverpool stretch their unbeaten run in the league to 40 matches with a 2-1 win against Wolves.

It's easy for some. Not for others.
