Tottenham Hotspur striker, Harry Kane has identified Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk as one of the toughest defenders he has faced in his career so far.
Kane said this ahead of Tottenham’s FA Cup fourth-round tie against Brighton on Saturday.
Van Dijk has been in imperious form for Liverpool since returning from injury last year.
The Dutchman has been an integral part of Liverpool’s improved defensive display after their centre-back crisis last season.
“Van Dijk’s a fantastic defender, he’s been consistent now for Liverpool over many years,” Kane told Amazon Prime Video Sport.
“Obviously won the Premier League and the Champions League.
“Tough defender, he’s been doing great this year after his injury last year.”
