The two defenders went head-to-head when Holland took on Germany in a Euro 2020 qualifier last Friday night, with Van Dijk’s side coming out on top in an enthralling 4-2 victory.
Sule, 24, has become Bayern’s leading central defender this season and Van Dijk believes he can go right to the very top.
Bayern Munich defender Niklas Sule has been tipped by Virgil van Dijk to have a ‘great future’
‘I’ve been watching Sule’s development for a long time,’ the Premier League player said.
‘I’ve played against him often, he is a very talented defender. Sule has a great future ahead of him. He plays for a big club and is already a cornerstone there.’
Sule will be hoping to emulate Van Dijk’s brilliant rise after the Liverpool star beat Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year award.
