Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk left Manchester City players fuming with a piece of 's***housery' in the Community Shield.
The Reds picked up the first trophy of the 2022/23 season with a 3-1 victory over City on Saturday (July 30). After Julian Alvarez had cancelled out Trent Alexander-Arnold's opener, Mohamed Salah put his side back in front from the spot with just over five minutes to go.
Not content with just celebrating what looked to be the winning goal, Van Dijk latched onto an opportunity to delay City's restart. As the ball was sent back towards the centre circle, he booted it high into the stand behind the goal.

Rodri confronted the Liverpool centre-back as he ran over to join his team-mates while Bernardo Silva protested to referee Craig Pawson. But Van Dijk managed to avoid punishment with no yellow card coming his way.
The Dutchman also strolled by without a care in the world to rub it in even more. Substitute Darwin Nunez then wrapped up the win for Jurgen Klopp's side in stoppage time to add insult to injury for City.
Should Van Dijk have been booked? Let us know in the comments section.
Fan footage emerged of the incident after the game and had Liverpool fans in stitches. One wrote: "Rodri thought he'd try it with him then realised oh s*** it's Van Dijk."
Another joked: "When you're in year 11 and the year 7's ball comes your way." A third commented: "Who tf is that wanna square up but he's having realisation its VVD, XD."
A fourth posted: "Rodri tryna beef it and Bernardo crying to the ref straight away, love it." And another added: "S***housery of the highest order @VirgilvDijk love to see it!"
