“Everything will really depend on the players themselves…”
1NEWS – So far there are only five football clubs on earth that have won the Quadruple or four trophies in one season, namely Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, to Glasgow Celtic. So could Liverpool follow suit this season?
The opportunity for the Reds to get all the trophies lies very wide in front of the eyes. After the Premier League Cup, Juergen Klopp’s men have reached the FA Cup final, second in the Premier League and the semi-finals of the Champions League.
So, are Liverpool interested in doing it? Virgil van Dijk has the answer. The Dutch defender said winning four trophies in one season was just a dream for the Reds. The reason is, so far no English club has been able to win the Quadruple.
“Nobody does a quadruple and there’s a reason it’s almost impossible to do,” Van Dijk told BBC Sport.
Premier League, Liverpool are just one point behind leaders, Manchester City, with seven games remaining. However, the Reds will face difficult matches until the end of the season. They will meet Manchester United, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur. Everything needs points.
As for the Champions League, Liverpool will face Villarreal in the semifinals. Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola’s Man City face Real Madrid.

“All this talk about a quadruple or treble comes from the outside world and can put extra pressure on us. This is something that everyone dreams of, to win every competition you enter. But we will see what happens,” said Van Dijk. .

“In football, anything can happen. Likewise with other teams,” added the former Southampton player.
Van Dijk asked his colleagues at Liverpool not to underestimate the physical condition to be able to fight until the end. “I’m enjoying my career. I just want to keep it, stay fit, win games and see what it brings for the World Cup (2022),” said Van Dijk.
Ahead of the Liverpool match against MU, the Reds are more favored. That’s if you look at the results of their last meeting in October last year. At that time, Liverpool were able to beat Manchester United 5-0 at Old Trafford.
