FIFA 20 ratings: Top 10 defenders – Van Dijk one of three Premier League stars | Football | Sport
Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk tops the list of best defenders in the latest edition of FIFA.
The Netherlands international was arguably the best defender on the planet last season, in which he helped Liverpool win their sixth European Cup.
Van Dijk was imperious at the back for the Reds, so much so he was crowned UEFA’s Player of the Year late last month.
The former Celtic and Southampton man’s displays for Jurgen Klopp haven’t gone unnoticed by the EA Sports, the long-time developers of the FIFA video game, who’ve given the Dutchman a rating of 90.
Real Madrid, Juventus and Napoli stalwarts Sergio Ramos, Giorgio Chellini and Kalidou Koulibaly are Van Dijk’s closest competitors for top spot, with the trio all having a rating of 89.
Van Dijk isn’t the only Premier League star to feature in the top ten defenders list.
Tottenham and Manchester City centre-backs Toby Alderweireld and Aymeric Laporte also feature on the list, with the pair both having a rating of 87.
