The 77-year-old urged all young defenders to watch the Dutchman in action. Marsh implied that Van Dijk 's simple approach to defending is why he is so good.

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
Liverpool signed Van Dijk from Southampton for a transfer fee of €84.65 million back in January 2018.
Since then, the Reds have won four major trophies. Van Dijk has been a big part of the club's most recent success.
In terms of Marsh's tweet, we completely agree. Van Dijk makes defending look very easy.
The 30-year-old has had a very good start to the 2021-22 Premier League campaign. After eight matches, Van Dijk is averaging a WhoScored player rating of 7.18.
