Liverpool have signed Virgil Van Dijk for £75 million making him the most expensive defender in football history. Van Dijk will be handed the No 4 shirt in the squad and the deal will be completed on January 1st – as soon as the transfer market reopens.
The Reds paying such a huge amount for a defender has certainly raised a lot of eyebrows and one Liverpool fan from Norway decided to ask former Liverpool defender and current pundit Jamie Carragher if he thought that Van Dijk was is a better defender than he was.
This is what he tweeted:
hey @Carra23 is he better than you were?

And in an answer to this question, Carragher decided to a bit sarcastic and tweeted back saying:
Better in the air than me, quicker than me, more composed & doesn’t score own goals! https://t.co/Bei5IquMSw

But as soon as the Liverpool legend gave an answer twitter exploded and many users decided to give their opinions.
Here are some of them:
Quicker cause he doesn't have a champions league medal weighing him down 😉

Yeah but that also describes Lovren.
