Ex-Liverpool midfielder Murphy says Van Dijk not at Ramos level

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy says Virgil van Dijk isn't at the level of Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.

Murphy does not think Ramos gets enough credit for his glittering career for both club and his country, Spain.

“The perception of players sometimes is based on the personality, rather than their footballing ability, and I think that's happened with [Ramos]," he said on talkSPORT.

“I don't hear Ramos being talked about enough [considering] what he's done in the game and how good a player he is.

“To play at the top for as long as he has; 20 major honours, two European Championships with Spain, one World Cup, four Champions Leagues, he's played in four World Cups by the way, four league titles.

“He's probably one of the most decorated footballers on the planet."
