Netherlands defender Virgil Van Dijk has come in for scathing criticism for his international performances.
The Liverpool star has not been at his best this season, struggling for club and country.
Van Dijk was the subject of pundit ire following Holland's 4-0 defeat to France in a Euro 2024 qualifier.
Former FC Twente and Feyenoord boss Gertjan Verbeek stated on Omrop Fryslan: "I think Van Dijk is a first-class wimp.
"I would immediately take away his captain's armband.
"He has to mean a lot more as a captain. He has to put things down. It happens to him.
"At one point he lets Lutsharel Geertruida drown and then he stands there after the first goal, like: blablabla. Where was he then?"
Ex-internationals Ruud Gullit and Marco van Basten also criticised him yesterday.
