Virgil van Dijk who recently transferred to Liverpool said that he is unfazed by his critics after his £75 million price move away from Southampton.
Van Dijk made a record-breaking deal at the beginning of the January transfer and has experienced a mixed start to life at his new club.
Under the spotlight after his big-money move, Van Dijk insisted that he can cope with the scrutiny associated with his big money transfer.
“I know because I made such a big step, for a lot of money, everything is going to be analysed,” Van Dijk said.
“No one is going to look at the good things you do. Everybody is going to watch the bad things and that is how it is.
“But I will discuss it with the people who want to make me better, who can make me better, and that is the manager and the players around me. If they think it is right then that is the way forward.
“It is a strength of mine to not really bother too much when people have their opinions, especially negative opinions. I know when I am doing it well and exactly when I am doing it wrong.
“No one will talk about my performance [against Spurs] in general. We defended very well, had two penalties against us with a lot of question marks around them, but no one is going to talk about that. But I know that as a team we did very well against one of the best strikers in Europe [Harry Kane].”
