? Virgil van Dijk took to Twitter to  hit back at Piers Morgan after the TV presenter’s response over a joke the  ?Liverpool Van Dijk finished second, behind ?Lionel Messi, who picked up the award for the sixth time in Paris.

Van Dijk was asked by a reporter: "Cristiano Ronaldo won't be here tonight, so that's already one less rival to care about."



“Hi Piers,” Van Dijk began, “If you don’t jump on the social media bandwagon and would listen to the whole interview then you would know I made a joke, and only got respect for those 2 ?“ Piers, who continues to state his belief that Ronaldo - not Messi - is the greatest footballer ever, was subsequently forced to back down on Tuesday morning.



And part of the Netherlands international’s response including the comment: "Was Cristiano Ronaldo really a rival?"

And Piers Morgan, ?who couldn't help but defend his hero Ronaldo, said, " No.. @Cristiano is a far greater player, you’re not in his league.” Piers did not tag Van Dijk but the tweet still caught the attention of the Liverpool star, who shut the Good Morning Britain broadcaster down.

?“ Ronaldo - who last won the award in 2017 - was absent from the ceremony and has been active on social media since the winner was announced.

Ronaldo came in third, but opted to skip the ceremony as ?he scooped up the Serie A award player of 2019 the same night.
