Virgil van Dijk is no doubt the best defender in the world and probably the best in the world.
The Liverpool defender was named the Premier League Player for the 2018-19 season after the Reds surrendered the league title to Man City with the barest of margins.
But the Anfield giants are on course to win their first championship in over 30 years and the Dutchman has been a major player in Jurgen Klopp's side.
Last season's Champions League winner was asked about his favourite kind of music, his response brought Nigerian perspective into his lifestyle.
Van Dijk professed his love for the Nigerian afrobeat brand of music and named the two of the biggest stars as his favourite - Wizkid and Davido.
"I'm just a big fan of afrobeat, Nigerian afrobeat, especially Wizkid or Davido," he said on a live Instagram interview.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Odion Ighalo has opened that the legendary Arsenal striker Nwankwo Kanu sent words of encouragement after he joined Man United on loan.
The Nigerian striker joined the Reds Devils on the last day of the January transfer window and has never failed to impress.
But the 30-year-old was heavily criticized from all quarters due to the fact he was playing in a lower league in China.
However, so far, the former Watford striker has scored four goals in eight appearances for United and has proven his worth to club boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Legit.ng also reported that Josh Maja has become a summer target for Premier League sides West Ham and Crystal Palace after a decent spell with Ligue 1 side Bordeaux.
The Nigerian international has scored eight goals in 24 matches for the French club before the outbreak of COVID-19.
According to The Sun, West Ham and Crystal Palace have been monitoring the 21-year-old who once played for English side Sunderland.
The one-capped Super Eagles striker has a deal with Bordeaux until the summer of 2023 but the Hammers look more likely to sign Maja.
