Liverpool highly critical of Everton challenges in Merseyside derby

Liverpool’s Georginio Wijnaldum has criticised the ‘completely stupid’ tackle made by Jordan Pickford on Virgil van Dijk in the Merseyside derby last weekend. A heavy challenge in the second half saw Van Dijk sustain a long-term injury. ‘Accidents can always happen in football … But, the way they were doing it, is completely unacceptable,’ said the Dutch midfielder.

Wijnaldum’s comments were reiterated by manager Jürgen Klopp, who also called into question the red-card challenge from Everton’s Richarlison: ‘Injuries happen in football, very often in challenges. But very often in challenges when both players try to play the ball. It was not the case in these two challenges.’

    Of course VVD has never been a shithouse on the pitch has he. Never injured anyone ever. Maybe a T-shirt campaign will help?

    Why are people acting as if VVD is the first player ever to get this kind of injury? this is football, you cope with it or you don't, but most importantly you move on.
