Liverpool say to start Nat Phillips with Virgil van Dijk next season – fr


Former Liverpool goalkeeper David James has a plan to save his former club from millions in the transfer market this summer.
Jurgen Klopp is expected to spend a lot on a new center-back with reports suggesting the club are close to closing a potential £ 40million deal for RB Leipzig’s Ibrahima Konate.

However, James believes the Reds boss already has the perfect match for when Virgil van Dijk is back in form next season.

Asked if Nat Phillips, who scored his first goal for the club in Wednesday night’s 3-0 win at Burnley, could replace another long-time injured Joe Gomez as the main man alongside Van Dijk in the heart of Liverpool’s defense, The Boot Room quotes James as telling Stadium Astro: “Yes, right away.

“He’s not the prettiest to look at, but he’s a very strong defender. In his first appearance for Liverpool, he outscored Benteke with a header.

“He has everything you want in a defender.

“If you have someone like van Dijk, you have the experience and the speed to back him up. Nat Phillips and van Dijk would make a wonderful partnership. “

Phillips was named the man of the match for his performance against Burnley, releasing an off-line shot during a fierce defense in the second half.

The center-back chose this moment before opening his account for the club.

He said after the game: “Clear the line – every time!

“It’s my job to keep the ball from going into the net, to stop the goals. If I can be on the scoresheet, happy days, a little bonus.

“But I much prefer to have a blank sheet. “
