Gareth Southgate reacts to Virgil van Dijk booing during Nations League clash

08 Jun 2019, 20:00

After Virgil van Dijk was booed in the UEFA Nations League as the Netherlands beat England 3-1, Gareth Southgate has refused to lay blame on English fans for their actions.

Whenever van Dijk was on the ball, England fans turned on the jeers as the Netherlands booked a slot in the Nations League final after beating England. It has brought some criticism of the England supporters for picking on van Dijk for no obvious reason other than he has a high profile and has just won the Champions League.

Southgate responded to the boos by joking that at least they are now turning against the opposition following England fans jeering their own team as they beat Malta back in 2017, "I'm happier they're booing the opposition now than they booed our players when we started. We're making progress. Driving through the streets of Malta... if Virgil has to take a bit, fair enough."
