‘And it’s tough sometimes’ – Virgil van Dijk send strong message to Liverpool team-mates
Liverpool Ace defender Virgil van Dijk is looking towards a quite busy April after securing a spot in the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City.
Virgil van Dijk has urged and motivated his team-mates to enjoy their impressive run in to the season as they continue their pursuit for a quadruple this year.
The reds will face a busy April with at least eight key games including home clashes with Manchester United and Everton.
“That’s something that we all want first and foremost, so you have to look after yourself, make sure you recover well, prepare well,” said the centre-back.
“I think one of the first things you don’t have to forget is: enjoy it.
“Like (against Forest), it’s something you should enjoy, these nights where you have to fight for everything.
“So that’s what we have to do in April as well. I think everyone, not even (just) the younger guys, everyone should enjoy it.
“And it’s tough sometimes because you want to play as well as you can, and even (at Forest) when there were moments where we were a bit sloppy on the ball but still kept going and kept pressing.
“These moments always happen and you just have to give it your all, enjoy the moment and focus on the game ahead of us. It’s good we are going to Wembley again.
“An international break now, we have to fight for our countries in a good way hopefully, a change of scenery and hopefully everyone comes back fit and healthy.”
