Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk feels there will be “no losers” when the Ballon d’Or winner is announced in Paris on Monday.
Barcelona captain Lionel Messi looks most likely to win the award and Virgil van Dijk feels even if he loses to the star, he will have not lost.
“I am going to be there for a reason and there are no losers on the evening,” Van Dijk said.
“I am very proud to be in that bracket, to be in there for the way I performed with the team last year and also with the country.
“It is just something to be proud of because not a lot of players go there and are up for these kind of things.”
