Watch: Virgil Van Dijk surprises Liverpool fan with a brilliant gesture


The football season may be postponed but Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk has proved that he is a class act off the pitch as well as on it. 

Liverpool’s foundation has been helping vulnerable people in the local area turn their lives around and that includes Reds fan Ben Price.

The 23-year-old has suffered from anxiety, but he is now expecting his first child and is hoping to realise his lifelong passion of becoming a barber.

However, the coronavirus outbreak means that he is currently self-isolating in sheltered accommodation away from his pregnant girlfriend.

Ben thought he was just having a video call with the LFCTV presenter but Van Dijk joined the conversation and helped to lift his spirits during this difficult time.

Watch the video below.
