Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk has warned Manchester United new recruit Harry Maguire about the pressure which he will face from now on. Maguire moved to United from Leicester this week for £80 million and the fee eclipsed the £75 million which Liverpool paid to recruit Van Dijk from Southampton in January 2018.
Van Dijk who has certainly proven to be well-worth the money that Liverpool spent said:
“The price comes with pressure but it doesn’t change too much because you always have pressure at big clubs like Man United.
“It’s not easy to completely shut off all the pressure. Quite a lot of things are more important than playing football. You need to enjoy it but the pressure will always be there.
“Just focus on doing what you love to do and play your best game. Get your qualities out on the pitch, enjoy your game and don’t think about the other things.
“If opponents have a go during the game because you cost that much, what can you do? I’m not listening to them. It does not change anything in my head.”
