He is a defender who plays as a centre back for Liverpool in the English Premier League. The Dutchman is widely regarded as one of the very best defenders on the world and the scousers agree with that, given the fact that they paid Southampton a whopping 83 Million Euro (75 Million Pound) to take over Virgil's services. This not only made him the most expensive defender of all time but also the most expensive Dutch player of all time. So far he has absolutely lived up to his price-tag. He immediately started playing as a starter and since he joined the team in 2018 he has been the leader at the back and one of the reasons for Liverpool's very good results. He started his career at the youth-team of Willem 2 in Tilburg, the Netherlands. He later joined Dutch side Groningen before making the move overseas to Scottish club Celtic. There he really started to make a name for himself, which eventually earned him a transfer to Southampton. He is also the captain of the Dutch national team 'Oranje'. He has played a whole bunch of international games already but as of yet he has never made it to a World Cup or European Cup. He did score a few goals for Oranje though, most notably the goal versus Germany that won the Dutch a point and made them go through the Nations League Finals.
