Virgil Van Dijk Received £750,000 In Bonuses For Clean Sheets Last Season”

A 2-0 victory ensured that Liverpool won the famous trophy for a sixth time, capping a superb season of progress which also included a second-place Premier League finish.

"But Jurgen Klopp is not putting extreme pressure on us to win the Premier League".

"I can't tell you the names of the other two as they asked for it to remain confidential", Gronnemark smiles during an engaging hour in his company.

"He did not do that during the past season, either".

They have made a fantastic start and sit top of the table with four wins from four so far - the only team in the top flight with a ideal record - and look in good shape as they aim to become champions for the first time in 30 years.

Before then however, the Dutchman will be focusing on club business with Liverpool, who will resume their Premier League campaign this weekend with the lead in the Premier League, a position they will be looking to maintain throughout the season.

Liverpool's defence of the Champions League begins this month after they were pitted against Napoli, Salzburg and Genk in the group stage.

Liverpool have reportedly handed a pay rise to Virgil van Dijk, with the Dutch worldwide agreeing a new improved contract at Anfield.

Wijnaldum has enjoyed a good global break as he scored and got an assist for the Netherlands in their 4-2 win Euro 2020 qualifying win in Germany on Friday and will be expected to feature tonight against Estonia before returning to Liverpool.

"So I was not surprised when Virgil won the UEFA Best Player award ahead of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. I actually expected him to win it", the 28-year-old added.

And as a set of words that would endear him to a set of supporters instantly, Gronnemark pretty much hit the nail on the head there.
