Van Dijk picks Darwin as one of the toughest forwards he’s faced

On the eve of the Champions League final, Van Dijk was chatting with Rio Ferdinand, a former English international and current commentator on a British television channel. The Dutch international has put Benfica’s Darwin Núñez on the list of the toughest forwards he has faced.

“Aguero was incredible. Then Messi is the best player in history in my opinion. Mbappé… it’s different, it’s fast. There are different types of players like Haaland and Darwin. It is very difficult to play against these players », he said, on the YouTube channel « Five ».

In the excerpt released, the Liverpool defender also revealed what his team would be for a five-a-side football match. “Alisson, me, De Bruyne, Mbappé and Benzema. Benzema is ‘on fire’ and deserves to be in this team », he concluded.

Recall that Van Dijk faced Darwin in the tie between Benfica and Liverpool in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
