Southampton defender idolised a true Man Utd great before moving to the Premier League

Southampton's Virgil van Dijk idolised former Premier League defender and compatriot Jaap Stam while growing up. 

Former Manchester United centre-back Stam made 79 PL appearances, winning the title in each of his three seasons at Old Trafford; something that inspired the Saints star during his early days in the Netherlands.
