Ferdinand: Van Dijk would improve Liverpool. Lovren makes too many mistakes

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has no doubts over the class of Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk.

Ferdinand is convinced Van Dijk would take long-term suitors Liverpool to a new level.

He explained on BT Sport: "I definitely think Virgil van Dijk would have made that team better. He would be the dominant central defender and I think he would be an excellent duo with Joël Matip.

"Dejan Lovren is not good enough in my eyes, he has shown too many mistakes over a long period of time. Alberto Moreno is not good enough in defensive terms. If he attacks, he's a pleasure to watch, but you want first of all for him to be good as a defender. He does not succeed. If two of your four defenders are not good enough, it will be difficult."
