“Van Dyke, are you a speed skater?”… The Dutch Legend of ‘Brave Reproach’


 Ruud Gullit, one of the greatest players in Dutch football history, struck a blow at Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool).

Gullit was a key player in AC Milan’s golden era and was a symbol of the Dutch national team. He also won the Ballon d’Or in 1987.메이저놀이터

Why did Gullit criticize Van Dyke? It’s a storm after Liverpool’s disastrous defeat. Liverpool lost 2-5 in the first leg of the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League against Real Madrid. at home too.

On the 26th (Korean time), Gullit said through Tribal Football, a European professional football website, “If you look at Van Dyke, it’s like you’re watching a speed skater. Like a speed skater, he puts his hands behind his back and bends his knees. Van Dyke ‘s body is leaning forward. That motion only avoids handball fouls and is not aggressive at all.”

He added, “After returning from injury, Van Dijk has become completely passive. He is not aggressive, only defending. Like a speed skater, he only defends and blocks. He does not show any hard work.”

Is it Van Dyke’s slump?

“Of course, all players can have periods of stagnation, but Van Dijk is a player who needs to be a leader. It is entirely his fault that Liverpool’s defense is falling apart. Van Dijk should take the initiative more,” Gullit said.

At the same time, he said, “Van Dijk is a player respected by all players. He is one of the best defenders in the world. He is a great player. Now is the time for Van Dijk to show real leadership at Liverpool.”
