Gullit: Van Dijk had Atletico Madrid nightmare

Netherlands legend Ruud Gullit says Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk had a nightmare against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.

The Dutchman clumsily gave a corner that lead to a Saul Niguez which ultimately decided the game.

Gullit told beIN Sports: "Van Dijk has a nightmare today, I saw him doing things, especially the first ball how he gives away the corner, clumsy a little bit, not necessary to do that.

"A little bit of luck, ball comes in front of his foot and 1-0."


The Dutchman added: "They know at Anfield they score a lot of goals, they know that, but they are going to face another game like this and they need to be better, higher tempo, quicker play, anything."
