Liverpool defender Van Dijk hails Holland teammate Timber: Nothing but praise for him

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk is tipping Holland teammate Jurrien Timber for big things.

The Ajax stopper rejected a move to Manchester United over the summer.

Van Dijk is predicting big things for his compatriot, who he believes is more advanced than he was at the same age.

“I wasn't nearly as far along as he is now," Van Dijk explained.

“I have nothing but praise for him. He is a great player and a true professional. He has so much potential. Hopefully he can develop further.

"Then he will be alright, I think."
