Virgil van Dijk has revealed his love for Liverpool centre-back partner Joel Matip while modelling a t-shirt of his face.

Liverpool were at their training centre in Kirkby to model the new Nike home and training kit range for next season before the final game of the season against Crystal Palace.

But after standard photographs were taken, players were asked to help create popular GIFs supporters can use online.

Injured defender Van Dijk - who missed EURO2020 after suffering anterior cruciate ligament damage against Everton in October - enjoyed a bucket of popcorn before being presented with a Matip t-shirt.

Matip responded: "I had nothing to do with this! He just come in and said, 'Look, I have a surprise for you!"

"The legend, the one and only," Van Dijk replied. "He doesn't like it but I love the man.

"This guy is a legend. He will do so many good GIFs we can all use and enjoy. What a guy."

Van Dijk looked on and said: "What a sight. He could be a model. He has the height!"
