Liverpool defender Van Dijk takes swipe at Holland coach Van Gaal

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has taken a swipe at Holland coach Louis van Gaal.

Van Dijk admits he didn't enjoy the new system employed for their friendly win against Denmark yesterday.

He said, “Until today we have been training hard, with lots of tactics and meetings. There are good times but also things to improve. We will analyse this.

"Of course we are playing in a new system, different things are required of the players. But I think we showed a lot of good things.

"Do I like the system? Well, I'm still in favor of 4-3-3 but I'm not the national coach and the national coach has a very strong opinion about it."
