Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl says Ghanaian defender Mohammed Salisu has what it takes to reach the level of Liverpool star Virgil Van Dijk.
The Ghanaian youngster recently indicated that his dream is to reach the level of the Dutch superstar and his boss insists he has the tendency to do it.
“Especially with the ball, he can develop massively.” Hasenhuttl told enfieldindependent in relations to Salisu
“When you speak about Van Dijk with his long balls and his calmness on the ball, he still has a way to go. But there’s no reason why he couldn’t learn it.”
“A good thing is that in the centre-back position, the older you get, the better you get because of the more experience you get.”
“This is definitely a player that showed this season that he deserved to play from the beginning and I’m very happy with his progress.” He added
Van Dijk previously also played for Southampton before joining Liverpool for £75million in January 2018.
