Liverpool fans sing catchy Virgil van Dijk chant and it's an instant classic

It uses the melody of The Pogues' Dirty Old Town.

Footage has emerged showing Liverpool fans singing a chant that regardless of which club you support is indisputably one of the best we've heard in a long time.

A re-working of The Pogues' classic 'Dirty Old Town', it celebrates the Merseysiders' centre-half Virgil van Dijk.

The lyrics go:

"He's a centre-half, he's a number four.

"Watch him defend, and we watch him score,

"He'll pass the ball, calm as you like,

"He's Virgil van Dijk, he's Virgil van Dijk."

The footage first appeared from an event in Paris when Liverpool travelled to play PSG in the Champions League.

However, the video has since been uploaded by The Liverpool Corner Facebook page. It has received over 170,000 views at the time of writing.
