"But, I'd probably say the goal against Juventus was the nicest one".
Tottenham have received criticism in recent weeks, but Van Dijk's comments should at least lift their morale, and make the Spurs fans feel proud of their team. Yes, we learned, the experience was that one game can be completely different to another.
