TalkSPORT pundit Jason Cundy claims one Liverpool defender is “overrated“. Cundy delivered his verdict after Virgil Van Dijk costed Liverpool their first goal. Though, errors from the big Dutchman are a very rare sight.

However, the Reds managed to break the deficit and comeback. Goals from Curtis Jones and Cody Gakpo were enough to snatch the victory in the first leg.

Virgil has been unbelievable for the Reds over the past few years. His leadership at the backline has been a tremendous cause for the success over the years.

Moreover, he is also regarded as “one the best centre backs in the world” by many. Although, he made a very uncharacteristic error to allow Willian to open the scoring for Fulham in the first half.

Cundy said-

He can do this Van Dijk. Sometimes, he puts in displays where you go ‘that’s a bit rubbish!’ Personally, I think he’s overrated. I don’t think that he’s anywhere near the levels consistently of the likes of Sol Campbell, John Terry, Rio Ferdinand, I don’t think he’s anywhere near that level, personally. He’s had, what, two good seasons?

I know people will go back to the injury he picked up against Everton, I think it was during Covid, it was a terrible injury. There’s no doubt that he’s top-class, but I don’t think if you put an all-time Premier League team together, he’s not in that team.”

The Dutchman’s record at Anfield in the Premier League is phenomenal. They are so hard to beat when starts at the back rarely making an error. He is already in the feast of the legends of the game. However, if he is to be compared to some all time greats, one must wait until he hangs his boots.
