Virgil van Dijk heaps praise on two Manchester City players

25 May 2019, 22:30

After a thrilling title race with Manchester City, Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has heaped praise on Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling noting that he found it hard on who to vote for in the PFA Player of the Year award.

The Dutch defender played a key role in Liverpool's season as they finished second, only a point behind champions Manchester City and conceded the least amount of goals in the league. His impressive performances did not go unnoticed as he bagged the PFA Player of the Year award, pipping Sterling and becoming the first defender to win the award since John Terry. 

In an interview with The Guardian, van Dijk revealed that he had a hard time choosing who to vote for between the City duo, "I was thinking Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva. Bernardo is outstanding and he’s a great guy. I chatted with him a couple of times. He’s going to be very important for City the next few years.

"But Raheem made a big step and that’s why I voted for him. I could’ve voted for another four or five players at City because they were outstanding. But they could’ve voted for four or five of our players too. Maybe Trent, Sadio [Mane], Gini [Wijnaldum]."

PFA rules prohibit players from voting for their teammates.
