Virgil Van Dijk responds to Roy Keane’s claims that the Dutchman was arrogant following Manchester United’s draw with Liverpool.



Virgil Van Dijk provides a response to Roy Keane’s assertions that he was conceited in the aftermath of Manchester United’s 1–1 draw with Liverpool.In response to Roy Keane’s remarks that the Dutch defender was arrogant after Manchester United’s stalemate with Liverpool, Virgil Van Dijk has retaliated.

After Manchester United and Liverpool met at Anfield in a 0-0 draw, Virgil Van Dijk expressed strong disapproval regarding the Red Devils’ performance during the match.Erik ten Hag almost succeeded in setting up his United squad to be defensively solid and to assault Liverpool on the counterattack; Rasmus Hojlund and Alejandro Garnacho both had opportunities to seal the victory.


Nonetheless, the Merseyside club was dissatisfied with United’s strategy, prompting former Red Devils captain Roy Keane to retaliasten the Liverpool captain.Keane disapproved of Van Dijk’s post-match remarks, stating that the Dutch defender exhibited a great deal of arrogance in his interview. Van Dijk has now responded to Keane’s criticism. Keane was a former Southampton player.


When queried about Keane’s remarks, Van Dijk responded to the BBC as follows: “I like Roy Keane, so it’s okay if he said that.


“He has always been a member of Manchester United, so I can see how he could react in such a manner; however, I meant what I said, and that in no way demonstrates arrogance.”Almost certainly, everyone who watched the game felt the same way. We proceed. We had the chance to score but were unable to do so; that is the most aggravating aspect.”


The Dutch defender’s remarks were somewhat exaggerated; however, United did not concede to Liverpool, and the Merseyside club grew increasingly frustrated as the game progressed, thereby bolstering the Red Devils’ confidence.


Ten Hag defeated Klopp by one.

Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho would have been pleased with the performance, and the former Ajax manager ought to be quite pleased with it as well.The Red Devils entered the contest with little to no support from the media or the fans. It is always a plus to earn a point at Anfield, regardless of whether United were in contention for the championship at the time.


Ten Hag’s squad withstood the Anfield challenge and emerged victorious. The United front line might have secured all three points had they executed the opportunities they were presented with more decisively.
