Van Dijk shows type of person he is with message to Pearson after defeat

Virgil van Dijk demonstrated his class following Liverpool's defeat by Watford.

The Reds suffered their first Premier League loss of the season against the Hornets last weekend, meaning they can no longer finish the campaign as Invincibles.

Liverpool were understandably disappointed to slip up in the way they did, with Watford running out 3-0 winners at Vicarage Road.

But Van Dijk showed he is gracious in defeat when walking past Watford boss Nigel Pearson as he made his way off the pitch after the final whistle.

Tunnel cam uploaded on Watford's official YouTube channel, captured the very moment the Holland international reached the touchline.

And it showed Van Dijk making a point to shake the Hornet manager's hand and tell him "well done" for orchestrating a victory over the Reds.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was also gracious in defeat, and heaped praise on relegation-threatened Watford's performance.

"3-0 is a bit harsh but we had a big hand in that," he said.

"The most important thing is congratulations Watford – well deserved. That should be the headline. We didn't perform like we should have and Watford performed exactly how they want."

On the game itself, he added: "In the first half there were little football things that didn't work out for us.
