He is joined by long-time rival Ronaldo, who enjoyed a stellar debut season with Juventus, for whom he scored 28 goals, and with Portugal, whom he helped win the inaugural Uefa Nations League.

Van Dijk is the only representative from the Reds' 2018/19 Uefa Champions League title-winning side in the final three, and makes the nominees list after playing an integral role in the club's European success and his nation's run to the Nations League final.
