Liverpool fans have reacted excitedly to comments made by van Dijk, with the Dutchman telling the club’s official website what he wants for the future.
He said: “I think that’s the most important thing anyway – to tell each other. When there are things that need to be said, I think this group of players is special, at least that’s what I’m feeling.
“Hopefully we can stay together for at least another four or five years and achieve so many things with this group.”
Liverpool fans are delighted by van Dijk’s comments as the club hasn’t had a period of consistent quality for a long time and if this group of players can stay together, it will ensure Klopp will have the tools to work his magic.
The issue the Reds have had to deal with for several years has been figuring out how to challenge at the top while selling their best players every summer.
Fans are excited that it seems as though this will no longer be an issue for Liverpool.

Van Dijk and co. can win the Champions League on Saturday evening and to think that it could be just the first piece of silverware for the Reds is hugely exciting.
Klopp is building for the future as much as he is working magic on the pitch currently.
Next season, his aim will be to win the Premier League while continuing his European success.
