Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk has made it clear that he does not care with how he was booed in the semifinal of the Nations League against England and also final against Portugal.
Dijk was booed every time he touched the ball in the Netherlands' Nations League semi-final victory over England.
The 27-year-old was also given unpleasant treatment in the final by fans reported to be England faithfuls but he is not perturbed about such act.
"I don't really care, if somebody boos me or boos the team, we're trying to win the game.
"We know we have a lot of support behind us anyway and at the end of the day it's we the players who have to do the job, and it doesn't affect me at all,'' Dijk said according to Daily Mail.
Van Dijk and Wijnaldum were hoping to cap off a spectacular season that saw Liverpool lift the Champions League title with yet another trophy, but it was not to be as the Netherlands fell short in a tournament final once again.
"We have to keep our heads up high, recover from all of this, learn from this whole experience, because we have a young group, and make sure we qualify for the Euros,'' Dijk added.
