Niklas Süle on Virgil van Dijk: “He was rightfully voted player of the year.”

Speaking ahead of their game with the Netherlands, Germany international defender Niklas Süle spoke on wanting to make it four wins from four, Virgil van Dijk and Germany’s tactics.

“Games against the Netherlands are always special, as we saw in our last 3 games against them. We were able to win in the last minute in Amsterdam. Now we’re looking forward to Friday’s game and want to reach 12 points in our group,” said Süle.

… on Van Dijk: “I’ve played against him a few times and have to say he has an unbelievable physical presence. I look up to his attacking heading game as I want to improve mine. He was rightfully voted player of the year and I’m happy to see a defender win that.”

… on Germany’s back three: “I’m a big fan of the three at the back formation, because it allows you to be compact, variable in the buildup play and have an extra man defensively.”
