Le Tissier tipping Van Dijk as future Liverpool captain

Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier is adamant Virgil van Dijk will live up to his price-tag at Liverpool.

Le Tissier even tips the Dutchman as a future Reds captain.

"He has captaincy potential, but there's also part of him which just switches off when it is a bit too easy, which if he's going to be a captain he has to eradicate from his game," Le Tissier told Sky Sports.

"There's definitely more to come from him. Before his injury he was right up there with the best centre backs in the Premier League, although Toby Alderweireld is perhaps a fraction better all-round defender because of that consistency."
