Van Dijk: 'Southampton return enjoyable'

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk says that he is "happy" to have picked up all three points on his first return to former club Southampton.

Virgil van Dijk has admitted that he "enjoyed" his return to former club Southampton after helping Liverpool to a comfortable 2-0 victory.

The 26-year-old, who swapped clubs last month in a record transfer for a defender, played the full 90 minutes of the Reds' triumph on the south coast on Sunday afternoon.

Having silenced the St Mary's boo-boys with a solid performance, Van Dijk - a Southampton player for two-and-a-half years before departing in January - insists that it was business as usual from a personal point of view.

"I enjoyed it a lot. I just focused on the game, I enjoyed being back, I had a lot of good memories and a lot of good things I did here," he told Sky Sports News.

"Unfortunately they're not in a good position right now, but as a Liverpool player I was very happy with the win. I can't do anything about the reception, I just did what I could."

Van Dijk had failed to keep a clean sheet in his previous four Liverpool appearances prior to Sunday's match.
