Wolfsburg defender Bruma: Supportive Van Dijk happy I'm back

VfL Wolfsburg defender Jeffrey Bruma has revealed he's being roared on by Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk this season.

Only Wolfsburg and Juventus remain unbeaten across Europe this term - with Bruma a big influence at VfL.

Just a year ago, Wolfsburg were inviting offers for Bruma - but no longer.

"Virgil is one of my best friends," reveals Bruma to BILD.

"I talk to him once a week. Since we were eleven, twelve years old, we knew each other. He knows Wolfsburg and knows that I'm playing again. He congratulated me on being back!"

He added: "I feel good and hungry for success. With me you can see how fast it can go if you always stay tuned. The coach's confidence came, and now I'm back!"
