Liverpool newcomer Cody Gakpo spoke about the role his Netherlands teammate Virgil Van Dijk played in his decision to join the Reds:
“We have talked a lot on the phone in recent days. He said that this is the right step for me so that I can develop and become a better player, that the club is really big and serious, but also a real family. I think this is also very important for me, because I am a family guy. He only said good things. I’m glad he’s here so he can help me with some things. I’m really grateful to be here.
Did the fact that he is a Liverpool player make a difference? Yes, of course, because he is our captain, he is a great personality, a great player. But the club itself is really great. And a pleasant achievement for me personally, that there was interest from the club and, in the end, that I am here.
