Liverpool End Interest In Van Dijk

Recommended Posts

https://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/announcements/265720-liverpool-fc-statement

Thought it warranted a new topic as it's now abundantly clear they broke the rules and are now backing down (probably on advice). 

Southampton claimed and that brought about an investigation in to Liverpool allegedly tapping up the player.

 

Quote

 

Liverpool Football Club would like to put on record our regret over recent media speculation regarding Southampton Football Club and player transfers between the two clubs.

We apologise to the owner, board of directors and fans of Southampton for any misunderstanding regarding Virgil van Dijk.

We respect Southampton's position and can confirm we have ended any interest in the player.

Klopp won't be happy that one of his top targets has been missed out because of shady tactics above him. 

Hope they still get punishment for it.

Embarrassing for Liverpool although I think they were about to be absolutely had money wise. I was hearing seventy million earlier. Seventy million!!! Van Dijk!!!

Sign Michael Keane and be done with it.

It's like Southampton finally stood up to the big kid that was bullying them for years and the bully just ran away.

Van Dijk has taken Southampton off his social media and changed his pictures on there already xD

There's better value for money targets anyway.

Regarding tapping up, is speaking to an agent or asking a player who knows him to find out if he'd be interested constituting as tapping up? It seems like that's how every deal is done these days.

Definitely better options out there, £70 million is absolutely ridiculous for him. 

This could turn out to be a blessing in disguise for Liverpool, I'm sure they'll find someone equally as good as van Dijk for half the price I mentioned above.

That's my question too, said this in the other thread about how it's clear as day that there are nearly always discussions between a player and the interested party before the clubs (publicly) agree a deal but nobody seems to care about tapping up anymore, with the exception of tapping up teenagers that a couple of clubs have been done for. But then you don't know if you're allowed to gauge a player's interest via the agent or what.

Apparently a bid has already gone in for De Vrij xD

Good, I would have liked us to sign him but not by blowing 70m of our transfer budget when we need to strengthen other key area as well. We could easily find someone as good as him for 20-30m if we actually fucking look for once instead of raiding Southampton every year.

Absolute shambles the way the club went about it. Though, spending 60+ for  a CB would have also been daft.

Used to love watching Van Dijk in Diagnosis Murder

I'm probably the only person here who laughed at that. You realise it's because I'm old

Feel like De Vrij would be far better value for money anyway.

I'd be the best value for money. I need is a chip sandwhich and six pack of tinnies per match.

We should make that our last bit of business with Southampton for at least a long while. And yeah, we should just nab their scouts and save the aggro

Is an apology an admittance of guilt?

If so, shouldn't the premier league take more action against Liverpool after their ruling on young players for a similar offense?

I dont see how the apology does Southampton any favours at all?
