Jamie Carragher slams ‘arrogant’ Virgil van Dijk during Liverpool vs Leeds United clash

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher tore into Virgil van Dijk following the error which led to Leeds United’s second goal at Anfield on Saturday. Van Dijk failed to deal with a bouncing ball and his attempted clearance only reached Leeds striker Patrick Bamford, who poked past Reds goalkeeper Alisson.

In a thrilling start to Liverpool’s Premier League title defence, Leeds had already pegged Jurgen Klopp’s side back once.

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring before a fine Jack Harrison goal from the visitors.

Van Dijk restored the hosts’ lead with a powerful header from a corner but his joy was short-lived.

Carragher, who was co-commentating on the match for Sky Sports, claimed the Dutchman took it too easy up against Bamford and was “arrogant” with his play.

“It’s a brilliant game,” Carragher said.

“I said hopefully after 17 minutes we’d get 90 minutes of this. This could be 7-7 at the end of the game.

“Alisson is not happy, he gets between the centre-backs there. Virgil van Dijk, that’s just too arrogant.

“Just tries to flick it round the corner to Andy Robertson instead of dealing with it.
