VIDEO: Wijnaldum 'Pickford tackle on van Dijk was completely stupid'

Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has blasted Everton's tackling in the Merseyside derby. Everton keeper Jordan Pickford's challenge on Virgil Van Dijk left the Liverpool defender requiring ACL surgery.

Everton and Liverpool played out an entertaining 2-2 draw at Goodison Park. 

Sadio Mane put Liverpool ahead after three minutes and then Michael Keane levelled for the Toffees after 19 minutes. Mo Salah made it 1-2 after 72 minutes and Dominic Calvert-Lewin levelled the scores nine minutes later. Richarlison saw red for a bad challenge in the 90th minute and Liverpool had a stoppage winner taken away by VAR for offside, but the biggest talking point was the injury to Virgil van Dijk. Jordan Pickford's challenge on the player led to ACL damage for the Liverpool man and the goalkeeper was not sent off. 

Wijnaldum, Van Dijk's teammate, spoke about the challenge ahead of the Champions League match with Ajax and he called it "stupid". Have a listen to his comments in full above!
