Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has sent a strong message to the club’s haters as they lifted the Premier League trophy last night.
The Reds have run away with the title this season, and had a memorable night at Anfield yesterday evening after beating Chelsea 5-3 before the trophy presentation.

Speaking during the celebrations, Van Dijk made it clear he had no time for anyone who might suggest Liverpool’s win was in some way invalid.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak in the UK earlier this year, the season had to be suspended for three months, though it was able to return in slightly unusual circumstances in June.
Games have been played in empty stadiums, but new rules like water breaks and extra subs have been brought in to deal with the fact that the players had to suddenly play a high number of games in quick succession after a lengthy break.

Van Dijk does not believe that matters, however, as you can see in the video clip above.
The Dutchman rightly points out that LFC were miles ahead of their rivals throughout the campaign, and it’s hard to imagine they would ever have thrown their big lead away if the season had carried on as normal.
