Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has spoken out about Liverpool’s inconsistent season, but believes he is stronger for the experience.
“I have had a turbulent season and I am happy that the last three months went well.” said the Dutchman. “I am comfortable in my skin again and am consistent.
“That’s also what I was used to in the last five years. It was a shock that it was not consistent enough as a team this year.
“You can only come out of it by dealing with it, inside and outside the pitch. I think I was able to do that well, with help from my wife and people at the club. I’m happy with that.”
“It went too much with ups and downs, but that’s also part of an athlete’s life. You cannot perform at your absolute best every game.”
