Confident Of Winning The Premier League? Liverpool Legend Jamie Carragher Belts Out Virgil Van Dijk Song Following Return To The Top
Despite his ever-growing prestige as a respected and fair pundit alongside his old mucker Gary Neville on SkySports, Jamie Carragher ultimately remains Liverpool through and through.
Therefore it’s no surprise that Carra was caught belting out the catchy chant Liverpool fans have produced for their world-class defender Virgil Van Dijk, who is currently favourite to pick up the PFA Player of the Year award following a brilliant campaign with the Reds.
In the video, available for you to watch below, Carragher croons along to the tune that takes cues from The Pogues song ‘Dirty Old Town’;
"He's a centre-half, he's a number four.
"Watch him defend, and we watch him score,
"He'll pass the ball, calm as you like,
"He's Virgil van Dijk, he's Virgil van Dijk."
The footage comes after Liverpool got their title-chasing season firmly back on track with a 3-0 demolition of Bournemouth at Anfield to return to the top of the Premier League tree (before nearest challengers Manchester City welcome Chelsea, at least).
Goals from Sadio Mane, Georginio Wijnaldum, and Mohamed Salah secured all three points on home turf, with the presence of Van Dijk once again in the heart of defence producing their 14th clean sheet of the season, just three away from what they managed in the entirety of 2017/18.
Van Dijk - the world’s most expensive defender after being bought from Southampton for a mind-boggling £75million just over a year ago - has been ever-present in Jurgen Klopp’s side, not missing a single minute of league action, captaining the side on five occasions, and even popping up with a goal. A true fan favourite for the red contingent on Merseyside, as was Carragher from his near two-decade association as a player.
