?Virgil van Dijk has said the wait for a defender to win the Ballon d'Or has been too long, with the last award coming the way of Fabio Cannavaro in 2006.

It was his performances in the  ?Champions League  which were exemplary though, as he guided  ?Liverpool  to victory in the final over  ?Tottenham  - leaving many to suggest Van Dijk is in pole position to secure “It’s an honour if people are talking about [the Ballon d’Or], but what can I do?

The Dutch defender took the Premier League by storm last season, scooping the  PFA’s Player of the Year award as Jurgen Klopp's side narrowly finished second by a single point behind winners Manchester City.

"But maybe the time has come to change it.”

I can’t deny I had a pretty good season last year, so the only thing I can do now is just focus on the new season, getting fit, stay fit and hopefully get an even better season than I had last year."

"? The people that have an influence on it, they have to decide who's going to win it.

“I can understand the fact that normally strikers or number tens win these awards because it’s more attractive to see," he added.
