Virgil van Dijk


The Ghana international is delighted to be compared to the Netherlands captain.

In an interview with


, the 26-year-old said:

"I saw this on social networks, it made me laugh a lot.

"Now you have to know if I am called like that in relation to my last name or my performance. At the moment, it can be my performances, it's okay.

"I also learned that a commentator had used it during a match, which is positive. Van Dijk is the best among central defenders, he has exploded in three to four seasons at the international level, so being compared to him is necessarily rewarding."

Although Djiku was born in France, he started to play for Ghana last year and made his first debut in a 3-0 loss to Mali on October.

"It was a source of great pride for me. The international experience is not nothing, it brings me a lot of things,"

he continued.

"We still have two matches in March to qualify for the Afcon. I can't wait to go back and win these two matches to qualify.

"I was called four-five years ago, but I had not yet found stability in a club. I first wanted to become an executive somewhere before joining the selection.

"We had to wait for the right moment, I was reaching maturity and it was time to go. Playing an Afcon would be really nice, but first you have to qualify.

"Then we will think about qualifying for the World Cup. It would be a dream to play in a World Cup too, I hope we will do what is necessary to go there."
