Former Chelsea defender, Jason Cundy, has slammed Liverpool captain Virgil van Dijk after his team’s 2-1 Carabao Cup semi-final first leg win over Fulham on Wednesday.

Cundy claimed Van Dijk is overrated, suggesting that former Premier League defenders Sol Campbell, John Terry and Rio Ferdinand are better than the Netherlands international.

Recall that Van Dijk endured a tough first half in Liverpool’s clash against Fulham.

He struggled to head the ball to safety in the 19th minute and allowed Willian to convert a half-chance against Liverpool.

The 32-year-old also picked up a booking just five minutes later, as the Reds trailed 1-0 at home.

Speaking on talkSPORT, Cundy said, “He can do this… Van Dijk. Sometimes he puts in displays where you go, ‘That is a bit rubbish’.

“Not only does he head the ball in a direction that you don’t want him to.

“Personaly, I think he is overrated. I don’t think he is anywhere near the levels, consistently, of the likes of Sol Campbell, John Terry and Rio Ferdinand.

“I don’t think he is anywhere near that, personally.”
