World’s best center-back – Van Dijk, says Bayern star

Virgil van Dijk is the best center-back in world football, according to Bayern star Jerome Boateng.

Impressing at the heart of defense alongside David Alaba after Hansi Flick replaced Niko Kovac as head coach to guide the Bavarian giants to an eighth consecutive Bundesliga title, former Germany’s international Boateng has enjoyed a renaissance this season at Bayern.

After Liverpool clinched the Premier League glory on Thursday, he feels Van Dijk, now a top-flight champion himself, standing apart among the elite.

“He’s up with his consistent performance,” said Boateng during a ‘Fan-Talk’ from Bayern.

“But I like [Kalidou] Koulibaly from Napoli, too. [Sergio] Ramos from Real Madrid has long been playing at a high level.”

The 31-year-old Boateng is keen to give Flick plenty of credit as regards his own upturn.

“Since Hansi Flick became coach, you feel good in training and in everything. The fun and good mood are back,” he explained.

“Hansi is very special, otherwise he would not be so successful with the team.”

“He gives us a lot of trusts, everyone. He wants to improve everyone and he does that. He gives us an incredible amount of self-confidence.”
