The Liverpool star, 28, is up for the UEFA Men's Player of the Year award alongside the two five-time Ballon d'Or winners.

While 39-year-old Brazilian legend Ronaldinho is his favourite player of all time, he was also asked who is the best Dutchman to have ever played in the sport. "I never saw him properly play but I know he was pretty good".

The Dutch centre-back responded: "Marco van Basten".

Meanwhile, the Dutch global has also named Manchester City's Sergio Aguero as the most hard opponent to mark in the Premier League.

And the Netherlands captain named Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero as the trickiest player to mark.

Van Dijk is widely regarded as one of European football's top defenders and he has had a hugely positive impact at Liverpool FC since signing for the Reds from Southampton in January 2018.

Van Dijk had a flawless record last season, where he wasn't dribbled past even once by a player in the Premier League, a record which was broken only in the third match of this season.

Most intriguingly, when asked about the greatest player he has played with, he replied: "I'm going to be a little bit biased and say one of my team-mates; I would say Roberto Firmino".

Van Dijk showed his love and passion for Liverpool when revealing that Liverpool's kit is the best that he's worn, while also insisting that Anfield has the best atmosphere and is the best stadium in general.

Van Dijk is accompanied by an array of talent in a Liverpool side setting its sights on a first league trophy since 1990.

Virgil van Dijk is set to be handed a new contract at Liverpool FC to double his wages, according to reports.
