Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has called for consistency from the team after their recent success.
The Reds have won the Premier League, the UEFA Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup and the Super Cup in the past two seasons and according to Dijk in an interview with the Premier League production via the club’s portal, all they want is to maintain that tempo.
“Consistency is the most difficult thing in football, I think-to keep doing it week in, week out. Year after year. And that’s something that we try to achieve.
“Obviously if you look at the last two seasons in the league, we have been very consistent. We have been putting in performances week in, week out and managing to find a win or get a good result – and obviously some games were better than the others – and hit a certain level of consistency that made us, especially last year, the champions of England. And that’s the difficult part.
“The season has just started with one game in and the season is going to be so long, so we’re not looking what’s going to happen at the end of the year, we are just focused about what’s happening at this case now,” the defender said.
The Premier League champions started their season with a 4-3 win over Leeds United with a trip to Stamford Bridge up next in their roster.
