Virgil Van Dijk Has Sent A Message To Shrewsbury Town After Liverpool’s Win In The FA Cup

The Reds booked their place in the fourth round of the competition thanks to a 4-1 win over the League Out outfit at Anfield.

Van Dijk captained Liverpool in the absence of Jordan Henderson and vice-skipper James Milner, and he showed his class at full time.

The Dutchman took to Twitter to send his best wishes to Shrewsbury, as well as praise the Reds youngsters.

Van Dijk wrote: “Into the next round we go, the young boys did well!

“Well played to Shrewsbury, good luck for the rest of the season

Shrewsbury boss Steve Cotterill also revealed in his post-match media duties that Van Dijk went into the visitor’s dressing room to swap shirts with the players.

Cotterill went on to hail the way Liverpool as a club made himself and his players feel welcome on their visitor to Anfield.

“Virgil came into our dressing room and congratulated everyone and brought his shirt in,” said Cotterill.

“Not only is he a top player – he is a gentleman and it was a very good experience for our players today.”

Liverpool initially went a goal down to Shrewsbury, with Daniel Udoh opening the score sheet in the first half.

Kaide Gordon equalised for the home side, becoming the club’s second youngest ever scorer aged 17 years and 94 days, behind only Ben Woodburn.

Fabinho put Liverpool in front from the penalty spot just before half time, but the Reds were made to wait for their third goal.

A backheel from substitute Roberto Firmino put Liverpool 3-1 up, before Fabinho got his second goal of the game with the final kick of the match.
