Virgil van Dijk has pledged that Liverpool will strive for more success after accomplishing a ‘dream’ by winning the Champions League.

The No.4 reflected on a season during which he helped the Reds lift their sixth European Cup and captained the Netherlands to the final of the UEFA Nations League in a post on social media on Friday.

“I’ve had a few days to reflect now at the end of what’s been an unbelievable season,” wrote the centre-back, whose commanding form throughout the campaign saw him named both PFA Players’ Player of the Year and Premier League Player of the Season.

“We achieved great things this season at Liverpool as a team and I feel proud to be part of such an incredible club with this group of players. To be European champions is a dream come true! We are all now hungry for more success and will continue to give all we can to achieve that. 

“I’m also excited about the future with the national team and we will look to build on the promising season we’ve just had.

“Thank you for all of your support over the last few months and I’ll see you after a break ready to go again!”
