Having won a spectacular European double with the Reds, the 28-year-old produced immaculate performances which saw him pick up the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year and the PFA Player of the Year awards respectively.
During an interview with the club’s official website, van Dijk announced the unthinkable and is determined that he can improve his game further.
“The only thing I want to do is focus and get better.” ????

Here are some of the best reactions from the Liverpool fans:
