Virgil van Dijk’s performances for Liverpool put him on par with the finest centre-backs in Premier League history, according to Brighton boss Chris Hughton.

“At the moment, he (Van Dijk) is a great role model.



“What Van Dijk is to Liverpool, that’s what our two are to us,” said Hughton.



“What you have with all the best centre-halves, and it’s exactly the same with Van Dijk, is they make things look easier,” added Hughton.



Asked if Van Dijk deserves to be talked about in the same breath as the likes of John Terry, Sol Campbell and Rio Ferdinand, Hughton replied: “Is he that level of player?

Hughton says the “outstanding” pair are vital members of his team and feels they can improve further by watching Van Dijk.

But Hughton believes the Holland international must sustain his form over a longer period of time to cement a place among the division’s all-time greats.
