Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk was named UEFA’s Men’s Player of the Year at the Champions League draw ceremony in Monaco on Thursday.

Van Dijk produced a stunning first full campaign with the Reds in 2018/19, with his imperious performances at the back key to Champions League success and a record-breaking title challenge.

Facing stiff competition from Messi and Ronaldo, Van Dijk received the majority vote to be named UEFA’s Player of the Year.

He becomes only the fifth different player to win the award since its inception in 2010, with Ronaldo(three) and Messi (two) dominating and Andres iniesta, Franck Ribery and Luka Modric also winning once.
