Nila's premature birth

Rike was expecting Nila and was due in September 2014

It was the same time when he received a senior call-up to the Holland Football squad

To not miss his much-awaited debut match, he arranged for a premature birth of their daughter

Although the delivery was smooth and successful, most of the fans and even the Netherland Coach Guus Hiddink criticized him for his poor decision

Unfortunately, the coach did not select him for the match, and he had to wait till October 2015 for his debut.

The dispute between Virgil and his father, Ron Van Dijk

After his parents ended their wedding, Virgil lived with his father, whereas his brother and sister lived with his mother

But after a while, he chose to go back to his mother and broke all contact with his father

This is the reason he prefers writing his name instead of his family name on his jersey

Even Virgil's younger brother, a businessman at present, and her sister ditched their father surname and started using their mother's maiden name, Fo Sieeuw.

Virgil's Surgery

A year later, after his first professional contract with the FC Groningen, he had an appendix burst, which was so serious that it would have almost killed him

It took him four months to recover. He even wrote a will in the name of his mother

At present, Virgil is known among the most expensive defender.
