Quick, composed and physically dominant - Virgil van Dijk is the defender who has it all. But from washing dishes while he tried to secure his first professional contract to facing rejection and serious illness, it didn't always seem as if Virgil was going to make it to the top.

This is the inspiring story of how a boy from Breda used his determination and self-belief to become one of the greatest defenders in the world.
