‘I think it says something about him’ – Van Dijk slams Gnagnon’s shocking tackle on Larouci

The Liverpool star had words with the Sevilla man at the final whistle, and slammed his actions speaking to Goal after the match

Virgil van Dijk slammed Joris Gnagnon after the Sevilla man’s horror challenge on Yasser Larouci marred Liverpool’s pre-season friendly in Boston.

Gnagnon was sent off in the second half of his side’s 2-1 win at Fenway Park after a crude, pre-meditated kick at 18-year-old Larouci.

The Liverpool youngster was carried from the field, and later left the stadium on crutches with his right leg in a brace. Reds staff are optimistic the damage is not as bad as it might have been, with Jurgen Klopp suggesting Larouci had been lucky to avoid serious injury.
