Darwin Nuñez is probably atleast the same as his compatriot Cavani, 184-185cm zone not quite a strong 6'1 guy
185.4cm Elais said on 29/Nov/23
@181cmguy I agree. Konate's probably nearer 6'4, as for Van Dijk i think he should get a 194.3cm listing. I hadn't seen much of Konate but he was a tricky one! For real
181cmguy said on 26/Nov/23
@185.4cm Elais, my guess is...

Varane: 190.8-191.1(6'3 1/8 to 1/4)
Konate: 192.7-193(6'3 7/8 to 6'4)
Van Dijk: 194.6-.9(6'4 5/8 to 3/4)

See photos of Varane and Pogba for proof that he is indeed a solid 6'3 guy, Van Dijk is def not shorter than Haaland, I'm convinced if Rob where to meet him he'd just skip the quarter upgrade and give him 6'4.75!
185.4cm Elais said on 14/Sep/23
Actually, im geniunely confused about Konate's height lol. He does seem consistently an inch or even moreshorter than Van Dijk in team photos literally side by side with Van Dijk with both of them not tiptoeing or anything. However, he pretty much everytime looked an inch taller than Varane who i thought as a solid 6'3 or 191 zone with both standing with the same stance. Lol
185.4cm Elais said on 9/Sep/23
@virgil Honestly Konate is clearly not 194 even if in some photos he looks the same as Van Dijk and is listed as 194 height as but in so many team photos side by side next to Van Dijk he consistently seems over an inch short of Van Dijk. He could be 191 but he looks max the same as Klopp.
virgil said on 8/Sep/23
Definitely 195cm. Looks exact same height as Matip, taller than Konate who’s is 194. Listed at 195 on google and on the premier league website
JackSentinel01225 said on 7/Sep/23
1.93M, 6'4 flat
185.4 Elais said on 6/Sep/23
@181cmguy Yeah youre kinda right i mean Rob himself did mention on this page that Virgil could turn out to be the stronger 6'4 guy back in 2022 but when Haaland got that 195.2 measurement, Haaland got upgraded over a cm above Van Dijk so something isnt really adding up. Google also had Van Dijk at 1.95 now.
181cmguy said on 2/Sep/23
@Rob, will you give him the 1/4 upgrade? He's been holding onto it for quite a while now.

Here he is with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the only photo I could find of them together, it was after a match, both played 90 minutes.

That photo is the thumbnail for a youtube video, in it Van Dijk actually gives off a bigger impression to me!

If it was 9-9.30am maybe he could be 194-5 zone.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jan/23
Has to clear 6ft4. Consistently taller than Klopp
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jan/23
195cm early morning is possible.
185.4cm said on 23/Jan/23
Doesnt look any shorter than Haaland who achieved a measurement of 195.2cm. If thats a morning measurement, he is likely 193.7-194.3cm range. In fact Van Dijk had a little edge on Haaland and in some photos he is exactly the same after looking at the photos of them at Liverpool vs Man City and Norway vs Netherlands. Also, looks very similar to Konate and Matip who are listed as 194cm and 195cm and also looks mostly an inch taller than 191.5cm Jürgen Klopp. So 194 or maybe more, this listing is the lowest possible for him imo, probably a height twin with Zlatan.
Sampex said on 21/Jan/23
@berta I agree with you, he thinks that 6'4 is 195. This Guy I think needs an upgrade since his national team mate Gakpo is listed as 6'3. My Guess 196 Out of bed - 194 before bed.
berta said on 16/Jan/23
rob he claimedx 6+4 in the video below and then said 195 cm. I guess he think 6´4 is 195 and hjis real calim is 195. He never look under 194. His real calim is 195 and he could be close to it.

@Rob Why does Van Dijk look an inch taller than Haaland in some pics when they are shaking hands?

Although he can pull off 195 cm at times, i think he isn't that high. There is a good chance that he is a solid 194 while Haaland i am not convinced is a 194 guy, that is the highest i would go. 193 range, Van Dijk is probably close to Zlatan.
Editor Rob
It could turn out Virgil is the stronger 6ft 4 range than Erling.

Virgil is probably ok listed here, and Haaland is no more than 6'4 flat

solid 194
Okidoki said on 4/Feb/22
It is really hard to separate him and Zlatan for me, i think they are very close and i wouldn't even say it's impossible that Van Dijk is the slightly taller one, although, that's unlikely i would say. They could be the exact same height really, or Ibra a couple of mm taller.

What i am confident of though, is that ibra is a bit taller than Haaland. Overall, i think also Van Dijk looks slightly taller. Haaland for me is 194 at most, he is probably in that strong 193 zone.
Finalbeta said on 18/Jan/22
Rob how much difference do you see between the two also factoring camera, ground and position of their bodies? If they both stood straight back to back would you give more than a 2cm edge to Donnarumma?

Editor Rob
Can only seem half inch difference, although how they'd look together in a normal stance might be slightly different.
recapa said on 13/Dec/21
@Original , allison is a 189.5-190 guy from what i,ve seen and klopp is a 192-192.5 guy.while i dont think that van djik is a full 6ft5 i do think that he is at least 194 or somewhere between 194-195 he reminds me so much of ibra and mj porpotions wise (long legs , wide frame ,kinda of a small head)
Original138 said on 12/Dec/21
@alvin i think you're right about him growing because i found this.

Click Here

This guy says he's 6'6 at least which is an exaggeration but gives a sense of how tall he is.
Original said on 9/Dec/21
6'5. He is notably taller than big guys like Alisson and Kloop who are 6'3" or a bit over that.
Original138 said on 14/Nov/21
Im curious how he would look next to a legit 6'5 guy. He often looks that height.
recapa said on 6/Nov/21
@Rob, time for a an upgrade ? i think that the pic that omari linked is enough proof that van djik is in the 194-195 range as he seems taller than strong 193 guy halaand.
Editor Rob
I haven't ruled out 4.5 range, which may well turn out to be what he could measure.
Omari said on 4/Nov/21
I would say he is closer to 6'5 than 6'4, I would give him 195 cm the same height as zlatan and alittle bit taller than halaand,in this picture he edges halaand by about 2cm

Canson said on 9/Oct/21
@Soetan: I could buy 6’4 flat too in a pic or two but can buy 6’4.5 in some. Maybe this Mark?
Soetan said on 6/Oct/21
I think this mark is just fine for him, he's a strong 6'4 guy. But a 6'4½ listing is not unreasonable either. It can go either way really, 6'4¼ or 6'4½, looks an inch taller than Klopp too
recapa said on 5/Oct/21
@Rob, a 1/4 upgrade perhaps ?from what i,ve seen he is in the 194-195 range he can even look like a good 196 guy sometimes ven tho that he is not also he has klopp always by 2cm at least who claims to be 192 and looks it.
Editor Rob
the 6ft 4.5 mark is something he could measure
Soetan said on 22/Sep/21
I don't know why people exaggerate his height a lot on this site. The best case for him is 6'4½. All these 6'5-6 guesses are just insane
recapa said on 2/Sep/21
i think him being 194-195 range is fair for him.he always looked a bit taller to me than his usual listed 193cm.he is around 2cm taller than 192-192.5 klopp and around the same as listed 195cm matip. 194-194.5 before bed and 196-196.5 out of bed.
BB9 said on 31/Aug/21
@alvin Gomez is not quite 6’2”(188cm) and carragher is not 6’1” (185cm), they’re about 6’1 1/2”(186-7cm) and 5’11 1/2” (181-2cm as listed here) respectively. Van dijk is a strong 194cm and not quite 6’5”. Almost every club of professional football arranged a medical/fitness tests for their players, including height measurements before the start of new season or at least they will held it for new arrivals. Some football clubs might add a few cm to their players’ profile such as real madrid, where ramos is listed as 184cm, bale and benzema as 185cm and cristiano as 187cm. In my opinion, they’re at least 1 cm taller than their real heights. In van dijk’s case, he is consistently being described as 193cm or 6’4” which for me is about right, but I see him as a strong 6’4 1/2” at 194cm tall. Jurgen klopp (listed 6’3 1/2” here) insisted that only a few players at Liverpool that are taller than him, mentioning van dijk and matip. I’m sorry but describing van dijk as a 6’4 3/4”(194.9cm) or 6’5”(195.6cm) is a bit of a stretch for me, but it could be his morning height nonetheless.
ChaosControl 6'2.50 said on 14/Jul/21
@Alvin okay now you’ve justified it that makes sense
alvin said on 13/Jul/21
@ChaosControl 6'2.50 - I don't know why for certain, but it does happen that sometimes the height is correct for an earlier period, and then becomes outdated as time passes and maybe the player grows (particularly if the height was measured at a very early stage of an athlete's career) and was never updated.

For Van Dijk, he actually grew 18 cm in one summer when he was 17 years old. He might have had that 193cm recorded at Groningen, or Celtic, and perhaps afterwards he grew 2-3cm as he fully matured into his late twenties. We know Cristiano Ronaldo was listed at 184cm at Manchester United when he was around 20-21, and he's now a reasonable 186cm.

For example, Van Dijk's height is not actually listed on the Liverpool FC official website. So I highly suspect that the height has simply not been updated.

Take a look at this thread where there are alot of comments about how tall Van Dijk seems next to 188cm tall Joe Gomez who I mentioned earlier:
Click Here

This was very early into Van Dijk's arrival at LFC, and you can see the immediate impression those LFC fans had, which is that the difference between him and the others seemed MUCH bigger than what it should have been according to their "official" height listings.

Just look at him walking around with supposedly 185cm Carragher:
Click Here
You can see 41 seconds into the video that Van dijk is wearing thin sandals and Carragher some thicker rubber sole shoes- so if anything, their real height difference is even larger than it appears here. Does this look like a difference of only 8cm?

I comment on Van Dijk because I constantly notice this sentiment. He always surprises by how tall he is when he is next to people in person, and I think the most logical reason is because he is simply taller than his official height listing.
ChaosControl 6'2.50 said on 6/Jul/21
@Alvin if you think Virgil Van Dijk is 6’5 why do his teams have him at 6’4? Why would you underlist someone
alvin said on 5/Jul/21
There's alot of different pictures that you can find of Van Dijk that clearly show he is nearer to 196cm than 194cm. I am fairly sure he is 195cm or 196cm. Personally I think Van Dijk is around 196cm tall.

Compare the goalkeeper Fraser Forster (listed 201 cm), Yoshida (listed 189cm) vs Van Dijk:

Click Here

Click Here

Clearly Van Dijk is closer to Forster than Yoshida, and only in a few pictures does he seem to be as low as about midway between Forster and Yoshida. The difference between Forster and Yoshida is 201cm-189cm=12cm, and half of this is 6cm. So if Van Dijk is nearer to Forster than Yoshida, than he should be less than 6cm away from Forster, making him at minimum 195cm- and actually Van Dijk usually looks noticeably closer to Forster than he is to Yoshida. This wouldn't make sense if he was only 193ish cm, but makes complete sense if he's nearer to 196cm.

Here is Van Dijk with Carragher (listed 185cm, but i think that's exaggerated- Carragher is likely around 183cm at best, maybe even 182cm). Nonetheless, we see the difference between them is huge:

Click Here

In this team line-up we see him vs Joe Gomez (188cm), Firmino (181cm), and Alisson (191cm).
Click Here
We can see that the difference between Firmino and VVD is about the same or slightly larger than the difference between Firmino and Gomez; for that to make sense, VVD should be around 195+cm. We can also notice the difference between Firmino and VVD is about the same as Carragher and VVD- with Carragher being a bit higher up than Firmino, supporting that Carragher should be around 182ish cm.

Another picture:
Click Here

Here is Van Dijk and Matip (listed 195cm):
Click Here

VVD looks a bit taller than or else roughly the same height as Matip in all pictures they appear in. Matip has bad posture, but at no point do I get the impression Matip is taller than VVD.

One thing I frequently notice is that Van Dijk appears to be consistently taller than people listed near 193cm. There's almost no instances I can think of where he came up against someone he was expected to be taller than and then appeared surprisingly small, and many instances where he comes up against someone he is supposed to be close to in height, but is surprisingly taller than them.

A great example is Sheamus vs Van Dijk, which you talked about in a video.
Click Here
Well you conclude that Sheamus should still be around 6ft2 since you saw him in person, and his height here at this website is still listed at 189cm. But you didn't really conclude what height that would make Van Dijk. The difference between Sheamus and Van Dijk is roughly consistent with the difference between Joe Gomez (188cm) and Van Dijk.
So once again, it only makes sense that Van Dijk is actually comfortably taller than 193cm, and somewhere closer to 196cm.
Editor Rob
Foster could be between 6ft 6 and 7, Dijk at 6ft 4.5 is very arguable, sometimes he could seem 6ft 5 too with folk

Frank Col said on 4/Apr/21
When you see Van Dyke who we are quibbling over whether he is 6ft 4 or 5, it makes the claims that Dolph Lundgren was ever this height, both from the man himself and commenters on here who seem to believe movie stars claims and how tall they are made to look in movies over the realities. A 6ft 5 inch guy, which having met him is what I think Van Dyke is, is a giant of a man. I have also met Dolph Ludgren who is barely 6ft 1 now and whose peak height could therefore never have been more than 6 ft 2.5 allowing for natural age shrinkage. He is nowhere near this height and has gotten away with it for years because of the average height of 80s and 90s Hollywood stars being no more than 5ft 9. Hollywood stars talk garbage whenever they open their mouths outside of movies and no more so than when they talk about their height.

This guy is no less than 194 cm. Same height as Ibra. He is a good 3 cm taller than Klopp who is no less than 191 cm. Rob when you list him at 6'4.25" do you mean he would still measure 194 cm during the day?
Editor Rob
I think he could hold just over 6ft 4 most of the day.
Ronaldo 185.5cm said on 23/May/20
OriginalAnon Much closer to 194cm, he is just under 194cm so 193 is too low for this guy.

FMExTREME said on 27/Jan/20
Easily a strong 6'4 no questions asked, seen him a few times whilst he was at Southampton and as a legit 6'0.5 person he towered me like a 6'4 person couldn't, surprisingly broad build compared to on TV. I'd say there's a chance of 195cm in early afternoon.
The claims of 6'3 is ridiculous, go stand next to him and tell me he's under 6'4.

194 cm is fine for him . never looked even 2 cm shorter than 195 cm Matip from what i've seen , also he towered over Henderson who in turn towered over 179/180 cm Trent , towered over 190-191 cm Alisson by 3-4 cm as well , towered over Gomez and Lovren , maybe even looked a bit taller ( 2 cm ) than 192 cm Klopp as well if i remember correctly

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

@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

Rob, I found an interesting video on Van Dijk and his height and growth spurt here’s the link Click Here
Editor Rob
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?
GregC said on 22/Feb/19
6ft4?? And the rest! Looks half an inch taller than Joel Matip sometimes and he's easy 6.4-6.5

@Christian @Canson

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
@Canson

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.

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
Peter 180cm said on 31/Jan/19
Why not put him at 193cm then Rob,if he's listed at that?Did he grow?
Editor Rob
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.
Matt99 said on 31/Jan/19
I’d say Mané is in the 172 range and Wijnaldum is a solid 174, fairly accurate rob?
Editor 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
Rory said on 30/Jan/19
Rob, in the above pic what is the difference between Mane and Wijnaldum, 2cms ?
Editor Rob
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.
