Bayern Munich veteran Robben: Van Dijk should be proud of his development

Bayern Munich veteran Arjen Robben says Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk deserves great praise for his career progress.

Van Dijk kicked off his career at FC Groningen and is now regarded among the world's best centre-halves.

Robben says his countryman should be proud for what he's achieved.

"He has made great strides lately, just look where he came from, and I think we should compliment him on his development," said Robben.

"Facing Van Dijk and Liverpool (in the Champions League) could not be more difficult."
