Van Dijk taking inspiration from tennis legend Federer in bid to become even better at Liverpool

Virgil van Dijk has cemented a standing among the global football elite, but the Liverpool centre-half is eager to scale even greater heights and has been using tennis legend Roger Federer as a source of inspiration.

The Netherlands international has been showered with praise over recent years, with the commanding 29-year-old making the art of defending look easy at times.
