Virgil van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum have been voted as Liverpool’s third and fourth choice captain, respectively.
Jurgen Klopp today confirmed the squad held a vote in which Van Dijk came out on top, with fellow Dutchman Wijnaldum placing behind him.
Jordan Henderson and James Milner will still continue as the Reds’ captain and vice captain in the future.
“I decided Hendo and Millie will stay [as captain and vice-captain] – that was the 100 per cent logical thing to do and would have been like that as well if we would have voted.
“But I said for the next two, the players can vote and now two Dutch guys are in a row; the team decided No.3 for Virgil and No.4 for Gini Wijnaldum. That was a players’ decision.”
The Dutch pair can now be known as vice vice captain and vice vice vice captain perhaps…
