Virgil van Dijk comments on Liverpool being put up for sale
Virgil van Dijk has claimed Liverpool will remain one of the biggest clubs in the world regardless of FSG's potential sale.
The centre-back is currently on international duty with the Netherlands at the World Cup in Qatar, helping his side safely navigate a round of 16 clash with USMNT to book a place in the quarter-finals.
Speaking at the press conference after that 3-1 win over the USA, Van Dijk was asked about the news that Liverpool's owners FSG are preparing to sell the club.
"I have full trust in Liverpool that they will be fine. We are a very established club, one of the biggest in the world and that will stay that way. Whoever comes in to fill in those roles, they will do very well. I am aware of everything that is happening.
