Must Read

Ghanaian defender Mohammed Salisu has disclosed that he wants to be like Netherlands and Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk one day.

Following his impressive display for Southampton this season, Salisu has earned comparisons with Van Dijk who featured for the Saints before making a big move to Liverpool in 2018.

The Netherlands skipper is regarded as one of the best central defenders in the world, having helped Liverpool clinch the Champions League as well as the Premier League.

“I think Virgil is a very good central defender and, I would say, is one of the very best central defenders in the world,” Salisu said, as reported by Daily Echo, ahead of Southampton’s meeting with Liverpool in league action on Saturday.

“One day, I want to be like him, especially with how he plays and the confidence he has and how he leads the team.”

Salisu has made 12 Premier League appearances for Southampton so far this season.
