RYAN BABEL has claimed Virgil van Dijk has a secret weakness – and is looking to exploit it when Liverpool travel to Fulham on Sunday.

The Dutch winger, 32, remained tight-lipped over VVD’s Achilles heel but is hoping to exploit it at Craven Cottage.

Babel – who went on to say he hopes Liverpool win the Premier League this season – claims Van Dijk still has much more to give, despite already being considered one of the best defenders on the planet.

The ex-Kop icon claimed: “Virgil has definitely developed over the past few years.

“I think he can get better by 30 per cent. I still feel he plays on 70 per cent. He can do much more. He can be fast if he wants.

“He does have a weakness, I don’t want to say what it is. I don’t think in the Premier League anyone has made that aware yet.”

Babel went on to say he does still have a soft-spot for Liverpool having spent four years at Anfield between 2007 and 2011.

The forward continued: “I do have a weakness for Liverpool and I do want them to be champions.

“I left Liverpool through the back door. It’s a prestige thing to prove people wrong.

“I was loved in Liverpool, I had good relationship with the fans and my team-mates but I felt I could do better.”
