Giving an insight into the music that gets him going on matchday, as well as what’s getting him through lockdown, Liverpool stalwart Virgil Van Dijk drops his SoccerBible playlist, featuring artists such as Travis Scott, Burna Boy and Drake.

Music plays such an important role for footballers, and just because the game is on hold does not mean that that fact does not still ring true. We recently got in touch with Liverpool’s Dutch destroyer, Virgil Van Dijk, to see what’s currently on his playlist, getting him through this difficult period. From artists you’d expect to see, such as Drake and Travis Scott, to some more surprising additions, the defender's playlist gives a rare glimpse at the man behind the stoic on-pitch performances.
