Southampton defender Salisu hoping to emulate Liverpool ace van Dijk

Southampton defender Mohammed Salisu wants to follow in the footsteps of Virgil van Dijk.

The Dutchman became a star at Southampton before joining Liverpool in January 2018 in a deal worth £75m.

And Salisu hopes he can one day be considered as one of the best defenders in the world.

"I think Virgil is a very good central defender and, I would say, is one of the very best central defenders in the world," said Salisu.

"One day, I want to be like him, especially with how he plays and the confidence he has and how he leads the team."
