Nonetheless Southampton are under the impression that Liverpool are making a deliberate attempt to unsettle van Dijk, with reports last month suggesting that the Dutch global would be interested in moving to Merseyside if they reached the Champions League.
And Hamann thinks the whole saga regarding Van Dijk has made Liverpool a "laughing stock".
In a statement Liverpool apologised to the player and his club over their approach, which came to light following media reports that the Dutchman favoured a move to Anfield.
"We respect Southampton's position and can confirm we have ended any interest in the player".
"Can we? Yes", Krueger said.

When the security footage begins, it shows the man entering the complex at a taxi drop-off zone with no weapon visible. He accrued the debt "due to being hooked in casino gambling", Albayalde said. "It was painful for us not to see him".
The £50m-rated defender signed a new six-year contract last year, having joined Southampton from Celtic for £13m in September 2015.
"Club is doing its best to become a laughing stock", he tweeted along with posting a picture of Liverpool's statement.
Liverpool were reported to be on the brink of signing the Netherlands global in a club-record deal from Southampton earlier this week.
And the Merseyside club has now moved to remove any tension between the two clubs.
Liverpool is not only the club chasing Van Dijk's signature as both Manchester City and Chelsea have both indicated passive interest in the player but may not be willing to match Liverpool's fee for the player.
Only two months ago, Liverpool's academy was placed under a two-year transfer embargo for tapping up a schoolboy player from Stoke City.
