Van Dyke: I`m proud to be in the company of two of the greatest in the game
Liverpool central defender Virgil van Dyke, who finished second in the Golden Ball standings, uses social networks to reveal his thoughts and feelings after yesterday`s ceremony in Paris. In his address, the Dutchman congratulated Lionel Messi and expressed his admiration for him and Cristiano Ronaldo. Yesterday Van Dyke joked on the subject of the absence of the Portuguese, which apparently was not understood by CR7`s sister, who responded viciously to the Liverpool star. Van Dyke did not get into the controversy, but showed his respect for `two of the greatest in the game. `The defender also said he was proud of what he had achieved in the last year. Ronaldo`s sister replied to Van Dyke: Cristiano is already back from wherever you went
