Van Dijk has been imperious this season, playing every minute of the 29 Premier League games so far. The proof of his quality is there for all to see, too, with the Reds dropping just five points so far.
However, Richarlison has reminded Van Dijk he has already “dribbled past him”. He also does not believe he is in the top three defenders in the world.
Richarlison told Desimpedidos: “People talk a lot about him, yes he is a great defender but I’ve already dribbled past him.
“He was chosen as one of the top three in the world as he had an excellent season. But yes, for me there are better defenders.”
When asked to name who, he replied: “Thiago Silva, Marquinhos and Sergio Ramos.”
However, Jose Enrique has warned Richarlison he has made a blunder with his comments. The former Liverpool defender even reckons the comments will fire Van Dijk up even more.
“Richarlison an advice for next time,” he wrote on Instagram . “Speak after the game mate now you got vvd mad. Let’s see what happens. Come on reds!!”
