Dutch center-back Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool) was chosen as ‘Most Valuable Player’ (MVP) in the final of the Champions League, won on Saturday by his team against Tottenham Hotspur (0-2) on the lawn of the Metropolitan Stadium from Madrid.

Van Dyck led the team to compensate for Liverpool’s loss to the Champions League final last season, winning the title this time.

Mohamed Salah’s spot-kick got the Reds off to a dream start in Madrid and substitute Divock Origi settled any nerves to seal a 2-0 triumph that sparked wild celebrations.

Klopp’s hunger for more success was clear within minutes of the final whistle and man-of-the-match Van Dijk wants much more.

Being the world’s most expensive defender never seems to weigh heavy on the Holland international’s shoulders, which is why his peers voted him the PFA Player of the Year.

Asked if his man-of-the-match display in Madrid points to the fact he could even be crowned the world’s best for 2019, Van Dijk said: “I think (Lionel) Messi is the best player in the world.

“I think he deserves it as long as he plays, so the Ballon d’Or is not something I’m definitely thinking about. But if it happens by any chance then obviously, I will take it, but I don’t think there is any case. I think he’s still the best player in the world. It doesn’t matter if he’s not in the Champions League final or not.”
