‘You got Virgil van Dijk mad!’: Jose Enrique warns Richarlison after the Everton forward said there were THREE defenders better than the Liverpool star ahead of the Merseyside derby

  • Richarlison claimed there are better defenders in the world than Virgil Van Dijk 
  • The Everton forward is set to take on the Liverpool defender on Sunday  
  • Former Reds left-back Jose Enrique says Richarlison may regret his comments

Jose Enqirue has warned Everton forward Richarlison that his comments about Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk will have made the Dutchman ‘mad’ ahead of the Merseyside derby.

Van Dijk is considered to be among the best defenders in the world, winning the PFA Player of the Year award and finishing as runner-up in the 2019 Ballon d’Or.

And ahead of the clash between Everton and Liverpool on Sunday, the Brazilian claimed there are better defenders than the Dutch international, and named Thiago Silva, Marquinhos and Sergio Ramos as superior to him.

‘People talk a lot about him,’ said Richarlison. ‘Yes he is a great defender but I’ve already dribbled past him. For me there are better defenders.’ 

Brazilian forward Richarlison and Everton will be keen to put a block in Liverpool’s path to the title – and he knows he has to overcome Van Dijk to do so.

But former left-back Enrique warned Richarlison that he may live to regret his comments once he takes to the field against van Dijk on Sunday.

Posting on Instagram, Enrique said: ‘Richarlison an advice for next time. Speak after the game mate now you got vvd mad. Let’s see what happens. Come on reds!!’

Richarlison was on target in the reverse fixture at Anfield, but Everton fell to a 5-2 defeat in what was to be Marco Silva’s last game in charge of the Toffees.

The 23-year-old forward – signed from Watford last summer for an initial fee of £35million – has impressed this season by scoring 10 goals in 27 Premier League games.

Meanwhile, van Dijk is also enjoying a brilliant campaign, making 40 appearances across all competitions and scoring four goals.
