@Ajax509: lol he would be. Wonder how Ibra would stack up. He may edge me by a hair a full 194 as I’m only about 6’4.25”. Pique I have at 6’3.75”. He looked much shorter than Kobe in the pic too but with less footwear. I see around 2cm with Ibra and Pique.

@Canson van Dijk could be your height twin 📏 I can remember a 194cm listing from EA Sports. Did FC Groningen bill him at that height? Unfortunately no source - I already checked web.archive.org 😅
My vote 6ft 4 1/2, taller than Piqué.

Saw people saying more than 193cm and about as tall as Matip. Click Here
min 1:53 he meets Mario who is in slides and looks quite taller than him. A true 193cm guy

6'2 For Alisson is too low

I see some photos when VVD was in Southampton, he has appeared to be about as tall as Fraser Foster who is 6'7''

@Rob , how tall do you think alisson is ? he had a tiny footwear disvantage
BTW , would be a nice add to the site , the best keeper of europe ...
Could be in 188-9 range

He's looks pretty tall, I think him and Ibra have the same height.
Jonathan Kingston said on 23/Jul/19
And except for Tacko Fall, van Dijk also stood at Grant Williams who stands at 6'7'' (2.01 m) tall. And van Dijk is slightly taller than him.

There's an image circulating from Liverpool's pre season US tour of Virgil with WWE wrestler Sheamus, who is listed at 6'2" 1/4 on this site. Virgil absolutely towers him.

Definitely the definition of the modern CB, Tall, Strong, Good with his feet, can pass and also an amazing Defensive anchor! The whole Liverpool Backline has improved so much with him in the lineup, with that being said VVD looks minimum 6 ft 4 1/4 and has a shout for the high 6 ft 4 range but with his age and monster growth spurt, he unfortunately won’t be in the 6 ft 5 range any time soon

194.6 cm measured van dijk in the afternoon
Tom kleberton said on 15/May/19
very short 193.7cm for van dijk minimum 194.9 cm needs an update

Always seems to be over 1,93 On team photos. My guess is a strong 1,94.

@K.A.188: I agree he could be
K.A 188 said on 12/Apr/19
Strong 6ft4 @Canson this guy is probably similar to you
said on 24/Mar/19
Rob, I found an interesting video on Van Dijk and his height and growth spurt here’s the link Click Here
Yeah it's a fair amount over 16-17 years of age, 18cm is 7 inches or thereabouts.
So he must have been quite average around that 16 age, then by 17 was near his full height?

How tall is kompany
Some spot he is shorter, some is par, and some is taller
I'd have thought more 6ft 3 range for Kompany.

6ft4?? And the rest! Looks half an inch taller than Joel Matip sometimes and he's easy 6.4-6.5

He never looked under 6'4 , even in the pic above with Mané . This just over 6'4 listing suits him very well , he towers over the vast majority of football players . I wouldn't be surprise if he was as tall as Ibra for example . He for sure is taller than a guy like Mamoa or Conan , probably similar to Canson

Current 194 cms
Canson said on 4/Feb/19
@Christian: yea 193 is as high as I could see him listed and I would bet that that isn’t a low for him either. I would say he’s 192 range
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 3/Feb/19
Yeah, a 193 listing here should be good enough for him given that he's been listed and described that as a player. I doubt he grew, although it's not impossible of course.
said on 3/Feb/19
I would be surprised if he measured 6'3 zones that say look at him here with klopp listed 6'3.5 Click Here Click Here Click Here
Canson said on 3/Feb/19
@Christian: he may be similar to Conan or even Momoa. I don’t get the 6’4,25 listing when he’s been described as 6’4”. The latter is even better than current based on how he looks which is strong 6’3 up to weak 6’4
secondrowback said on 2/Feb/19
Maybe a weak 6'5 (195cm)? He stacks up well against Fraser Forster who is listed as 6'7?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 1/Feb/19
Looks more 6'3"-6'3.5" in the above pic with 5'8" listed Sadio Mane, especially when you consider that Sadio has slightly less footwear.
BT said on 1/Feb/19
He can comfortably look 6'4.5, or even more than that at times, wouldn't go lower than 6'4 1/4.
Nik said on 1/Feb/19
It's incredible that he was often described as being under 194 cm!
184guy2 said on 31/Jan/19
Yeah thi seems right . Generally looks a little over 6'4 , at times even 6'5 , beside Mo for example .
A strong 6'4 suits him very well
said on 31/Jan/19
Why not put him at 193cm then Rob,if he's listed at that?Did he grow?
I think at 19 he was still listed 193 but I would still say in his 20's he has seemed a more stronger 6ft 4 guy, at times seeming 6ft 4.5 in fact.
said on 31/Jan/19
I’d say Mané is in the 172 range and Wijnaldum is a solid 174, fairly accurate rob?
Mane can look 5ft 8 or under at times, Wij above 5ft 8, but maybe not 5ft 9.
Nik said on 31/Jan/19
He's mega tall!
joe### said on 30/Jan/19
taller than klopp strong 193
Pr0n00b said on 30/Jan/19
Yeah this seems right, he always is a little bit taller than Klopp
said on 30/Jan/19
Rob, in the above pic what is the difference between Mane and Wijnaldum, 2cms ?
It might be close to 2cm, it's not much really.
Sandy Cowell said on 30/Jan/19
A professional footballer of whom I have never heard? That's most unusual!
He's a very tall one, there's no denying that, and Virgil can have 6ft4.25 from me.
⭐️ I remember a song by Genesis entitled 'Me and Virgil', just in case you are interested! I believe it was sung by Phil Collins.
