Cape Town - Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has tipped Niklas Sule to
have a "great future" in football after establishing himself in
Bayern Munich's starting XI.
Sule has enjoyed an impressive rise in the game and, at 24,
he's a regular starter in the Bayern backline for manager Niko Kovac.
The youngster has even started to establish himself in the
German national side and featured in their recent outings against both the
Netherlands and Northern Ireland.
Liverpool star Van Dijk, who got to see Sule up close during
the Netherlands' recent Euro 2020 qualifier, feels the Bayern defender has all
the attributes to become one of the best in the business.
"I've been watching Sule's development for a long
time," Van Dijk said.
"I've played against him often, he is a very talented
defender. Sule has a great future ahead of him. He plays for a big club and is
already a cornerstone there."
Sule will be back in Bundesliga action on Saturday when
Bayern Munich make the trip to RB Leipzig.
Meanwhile, Liverpool entertain Newcastle United at Anfield in hopes of earning three points and continue their winning streak.
