Dutch defender Jeremie Frimpong takes inspiration from Liverpool's vigil Van Dijk as he sets his future plans of winning the Ballon D'ior.

Frimpong, a £350,000 signing from Manchester City in the summer, has been sensational for the Scottish champions during the 2019/20 campaign and has become a firm fans’ favourite.

He's optimistic of following the steps of fellow Dutch man to reach the highest point of his young carer.

Look at Virgil Van Dijk, 'there's the example. Played for Celtic; four years later he nearly wins the Ballon D'Or at Liverpool. He was so close.

'So can I be the best player there is? Yeah, I think I can be. Celtic can help me with that. The history here is crazy. They are so good - one of the biggest teams there is.

'So I hope I can be the best here. But that only comes with hard work and commitment and that's what I'm going to produce to make it happen.'
