The former Southampton central defender has committed himself to giving everything he has.
"I think the most important thing is the size of the club, the culture of the club, the players, the manager and obviously the fans, who make the club this special".
"I am vocal, I am obviously pretty tall, I like to command the defensive line and have the ball as well".
"[But] he reminds me of Messi, the scampering way he plays".
"Obviously there is a lot of money being paid, but I can't do anything about that money, I can't do anything about the price - nobody can", the Holland worldwide added.
"I think this is the right time for me to be here and to develop all sorts of aspects of my game".
Jameis Winston passes Dan Marino for new National Football League record vs. Saints
The Buccaneers (4-11) scored on a pair of 1-yard runs, the first by Peyton Barber and the second by quarterback Jameis Winston . The half ended with the Saints up 14-13 and leading in total yards 233 to 125 as quarterback Brees was 7 of 13 for 86 yards.
"I am just looking forward to being on the pitch, especially as a [home] player at the stadium".
However, that clearly was just the beginning in the deal for Van Dijk, and now with the January transfer window formally open, he has finally completed his long-awaited move to Anfield.
In fact, Southampton were so unimpressed with Liverpool's tactics and their approach for the centre-back, they lodged an official complaint, resulting in Jurgen Klopp's side apologising and withdrawing their interest in the Dutchman.
The Reds are in action this afternoon away to Burnley, but Van Dijk will have to wait until Friday's FA Cup Merseyside derby before he can play.
His first Premier League start should be against Man City, again at Anfield, the following weekend.
