Central Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has made all but two appearances for Liverpool this season. The England international joined Liverpool in 2017 from Arsenal.
He had since established himself in Klopp’s lineups but a long term injury has been keeping him out of action for much of this season.
In a video posted on Liverpool’s official Youtube channel, the midfielder claims the credit for much of what Van-Dijk has achieved. He goes on to add a claim few would contest: that Van-Dijk is the best in the world.
“I take the lead you (Van-Dijk) follow,”
“That’s off the pitch but it’s also on the pitch, and that’s what has brought you to the position you are in today.
“As, for me, the best centre back in the world – and I ain’t going to say that again,”
