Van Dijk claim
Ibrahim Said, who was on loan at Everton in 2003, but never made an appearance, has claimed he was a better defender than Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk.
“I am more skilled than Van Dijk, because he plays in only one position, while I have been playing in more than one. Certainly, I’m better than him,” Said told Egyptian TV channel TEN.
“I talk seriously about this, if you compare me to him, you will find that there is a huge difference between us in everything, because he has a negative, which is that when he loses his focus, [he plays] completely incorrectly.
“The possibilities he possesses, in addition to his teammates, make any player shine at this level, I am seriously talking about this.
“[Van] Dijk is a good defender, but sometimes he makes mistakes like all defenders in the world.”
Well, it’s certainly a big claim!
