With the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold’s and Jadon Sancho’s superb squads being shared on Reddit, no one was prepared for just how good Virgil van Dijk’s Ultimate Team has turned out to be.

Virgil van Dijk’s Ultimate Team was revealed through a Reddit post on the FIFA sub-Reddit that quickly gained traction nd now has 2.5k up votes.

BIG BUCKS: This team costs 25.4m PS4 / 21.4m Xbox One (excluding van Dijk’s unattainable card)

Van Dijk’s back five is made up of his Liverpool teammates Trent Alexander-Arnold (85 IF) and Andy Robertson (86 IF) as fullbacks, with Alisson (89 base card) between the sticks. The Duchman’s own 99 rated card partners Ronald Koeman (88 Icon) at centre back.

The midfield has got to be one of the strongest in FIFA 20, with Icons Ronaldinho (91), Clarence Seedorf (88) and Ruud Gullit (90) coming together with the sensational Lionel Messi (94 base card) in a diamond.

Other footballer’s FUTs have been shared on Reddit over the two months since FIFA 20’s release.

Van Dijk’s Liverpool team mate, Alexander-Arnold, also had his FUT shared on Reddit. It’s a strong team, but not on the same level as van Dijk’s squad.

Featuring in three out of the four squads, Ruud Gullit appears to be a must-buy in this years FIFA.

The lads at Hashtag United agree that Ruud Gullit might be the best card on FIFA 20 – however if you don’t have the cash, they advise that a budget-buy of Sissoko can also work effectively!
