Virgil Van-Dijk is unanimously the PFA Player’s Player of the Year for the current season. The award is special because the winner is elected by vote of his fellow players.
The Dutchman has appeared in all 36 matches for Liverpool so far this season, and has contributed to the best defence in the league along with Alisson, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip.
Liverpoolfc.com has published a full length interview with the Dutchman, who has literally been a rock for us at the back. In the interview he talks about being recognized by his fellow professionals, how a defender can make the award shortlist and what Klopp does for his players.

“It’s pretty difficult to put it into words. I think it’s the highest honour you can get as a player – to be voted Player of the Year by the players you play against every week. It’s special. I’m obviously very proud and honoured to win it.”
“He (Klopp) gives confidence. It’s just credit to everyone who is part of Liverpool. The fans have been supporting us from day one and will always be there.”

The individual awards are all well and good but they won’t mean much until the best player in the league is able to win silverware.
