When I was allowed to talk to him, I talked to him,” Klopp said when asked if Van Dijk spoke with Gakpo before signing the contract as quoted by ESPN.

“There are some nice moments when you are manager of Liverpool FC and you realize you think you have to convince someone and then you realize during your talk, ‘Oh, the door is wide open, it’s more or less a home run. ‘ And that’s cool,” Klopp continued. .

“So we didn’t need Virgil to convince him. But after that, obviously Virgil likes to get involved in these kinds of things and from a certain moment he said it too. But it’s all good,” he added.

After signing a contract with Liverpool, Gakpo said that Van Dijk told him that moving to Liverpool would help him to “develop and become a better player.”

“What he told me is that this is the right step for me to take and for me to develop and become a better player, that this club is a very big and massive club but also like a real family,” Gakpo told the club. as quoted by ESPN.

“I think it’s also very important for me because I’m a family man. He only has good things to say. I’m also happy that he’s here, so he can help me with some things.”
