Liverpool legend Phil Thompson was not too amused by Roy Keane’s criticism. In an interview with talkSport, Thompson defended Van Dijk from criticism, claiming the Liverpool skipper was only voicing his opinion.

Thompson stated, “I don’t think it was arrogant. I think he was just giving his opinion. As Roy gives his opinion, as Gabby gives his opinion, I, I think it wasn’t arrogant by any means. I think it was frustration. I really feel you come off that game. You know you have dominated them.”
