Virgil van Dijk: Southampton defender 'not for sale', says chairman

Virgil van Dijk: Southampton defender 'not for sale', says chairman

Former Southampton star Brett Ormerod laments the fact that players such as Virgil van Dijk have too much control over their clubs.

As reported by Italian publication Calciomercato, the Saints have earmarked the Dutchman as the heir apparent to countryman Virgil van Dijk, who has always been known to be on the way out of St Mary's this summer following an official transfer request.

Nobody is for sale that we don't want to sell, so he is not for sale in this window.

CEOs Offer Mainly No Response to Charlottesville, Trump After Merck Exec Exits
There had already been departures from two major councils created by the Trump administration that were tied to its policies. On Under Armour's Facebook page Yesterday, customers who supported Trump threatened to boycott the athletic clothier.


"It's about an overall much, much, much bigger picture - a change of course for Southampton".

"It's the principle, path and statement we need to make to get to a new space as a club", Krueger continued.

Saints manager Mauricio Pellegrino, who ordered the Dutchman to train alone in the summer, said before the weekend that he wants the defender to stay.

The girls first get converted and then they refuse to stay with their family members and subsequenctly their marriage is done. The woman is in her father's custody after the Kerala High Court annulled the marriage on May 24, 2017.


Whereas they will hold firm remain to be seen, but it is certain that the Saints are more adamant about the Van Dijk situation than they have about any other potential transfer at the club of late.

Van Dijk signed a new six-year contract in May 2016, having joined for £13m from Celtic in September 2015.

The Hornets managed to smash three goals against the Reds on Saturday in a 3-3 draw while Klopp's men were lucky to walk away from Germany with a win after Simon Mignolet saved a penalty in their 2-1 win at Hoffenheim in the Champions League play-off first leg.

Saints reportedly fire team doctors who misdiagnosed Delvin Breaux injury
After missing 9 of 15 practices, Breaux was diagnosed with a simple contusion, but it turns out that the injury is far worse. So instead of this incident becoming a last straw for Breaux, it became a last straw for the team orthopedists.


This is not dissimilar to the ambidextrous Van Dijk, and Southampton's comparison of the two players is understandable.
