Leicester coach Toure: There's a weakness in Van Dijk's game

Leicester City coach Kolo Toure is convinced there's several weaknesses inside the game of Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk.

Former Liverpool centre-half Toure believes he knows how to beat the Reds powerhouse.

"He's an unbelievable player," Toure told Stats Perform News.

"He's a top player. He's got speed, height, he can jump. He's got technique. He can switch the game with his long passes. He has got everything.

"I haven't seen many players challenge him one on one. In my opinion, that's his weakness! He's really tall and if you really attack him with the ball, he can struggle, but he's so clever.

"He's so clever because he drops well, but if you are really aggressive in attack in a one-on-one, I think you can get something from him.

"He's a really clever player. He's got Joe Gomez on his side, good players on his side to help him as well. There are good players around him and I think that makes his game easy, but I think he's got so many qualities."
