During the celebrations, Liverpool ace Milner was heard branded United ‘f***ing w***ers’ as the Reds stars were given the title.
And United ace Pereira has slammed the Liverpool midfielder, while also taking aim at Van Dijk.
“I don’t really like that guy, Milner,” Pereira said.
“And to tell you the truth, I don’t like that guy, the defender, Van Dijk. [He is] Marrento [cocky/arrogant], man. Even the way he plays is kind of arrogant.”
Van Dijk has been sensational for Liverpool since heading to Anfield in 2018.
The centre-half has sured up Liverpool’s defence and has been instrumental in their success.
Speaking after Liverpool’s title celebrations, Van Dijk said no one can argue it isn’t well deserved.
He said: “We are all human beings, we all have emotions going through your head, feelings.
