Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk is determined to become a club legend and believes the Reds have everything they need for future success.

The centre-back arrived at Anfield in January 2018 for £76 million and has proved to be one of the great signings in Premier League history.

Having won the Champions League last season, a first Premier League title is just two wins away.

And Van Dijk is already thinking about how he would like to be remembered by the club and the supporters.

Van Dijk told Spanish newspaper Sport: "As a Liverpool legend. I want to achieve incredible things here.

"I would like to be one of those players that return to Anfield after retiring. I see club legends at games, and I feel part of a really big family.

"We have a fantastic team, we don't lack anything, we have all the tools necessary to go on winning.

"A coach we identify with, a versatile squad, a style of play that breeds victories, a stadium and supporters that play their part."
