Liverpool urged to pair De Ligt with Van Dijk

Former Ajax player Mario Melchiot spoke for TalkSPORT ahead of the Champions League semifinals and of course, the only remaining Dutch team in the competition was the main subject. Melchiot, who used to play for Chelsea, spoke of Matthijs De Ligt in particular, as he envisaged Liverpool to do what they can to sign the 19-year-old centre-back and pair him with his compatriot Virgil van Dijk.

“I like him as a player, he’s very smart”, Melchiot started. “He went through a very difficult spell when he first broke through because he made a couple of mistakes for the national team so the country was jumping on his back.

“But I think that shifted his mindset and made him an even better player. “Now, the way he’s playing right now, I think if Liverpool were smart they’ll go after him. De Ligt and Van Dijk, those two together would be a great partnership.”
