Liverpool defender Kabak: Van Dijk really nice guy, a top person – like his talent!

Liverpool defender Ozan Kabak says he's happy training with Virgil van Dijk.

The Turkey international has endured a rocky start to life at Anfield since joining the club on loan last month but is now starting to find his feet with a little bit of help from the Dutchman.

And with Kabak being thrown in at the deep end, he has revealed that advice from Van Dijk has helped him settle into his new surroundings.

Kabak told Premier League Productions: "I have met with him. He is a really nice guy, a top person – like his talent!

"He gave me a lot of help and tips about football. Now he is in rehabilitation but I hope he will be back soon and he will help us on the pitch also.

"I am looking forward to playing with him, of course, in the defence. He gave me some advice about how Liverpool plays in defence and how we have a high line, so he gave me some tips about how Liverpool play.

"It's little things but of course it helps when you play, when you defend. He is such an experienced guy and his words are very valuable for me."
