Liverpool defender Van Dijk raps booing England fans: Leave Joe alone

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk is upset hearing teammate Joe Gomez booed by his own England fans.

Van Dijk defended Gomez after his row with Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling and has called for people to "leave him alone".

"It's disappointing to see," Van Dijk said of England supporters' treatment toward Gomez.

"I want to say as well it's been dealt with. I think everyone should stop talking about it because it's just a thing that happened. They all sorted it out.

"Everyone needs to move on, leave Joe especially alone. But yes, it was disappointing to see."
