Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk has dismissed rumours that the team is being haunted by criticism from outside.
Van Dijk said in an interview that the squad pays little attention to criticism from pundits.

When asked how Liverpool’s players have coped with the recent speculation, the Dutchman said: “Not listening to the outside world, that’s the most important thing.
“It’s funny sometimes because a lot of ex-football players know exactly what we are going through.
“They say a lot of things to try and get to us. We know last week was unacceptable and we try to make it right.
“This is a step in the right direction, don’t get carried away because there are so many games but it’s time to focus on the international break then crack on when we return.”
