Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has spoken about defender Virgil Van Dijk’s condition. As you may know, Virgil suffered a severe knee injury.
“I understand why people are interested in Virgil’s condition on a regular basis. It’s fine. But it makes no sense to talk about his return every day. The operation will end at the right moment.”
“Recovery processes will take time. Every person is different and handles different situations differently, so it is not worth discussing when to return,” Klopp was quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo.
As you know, Van Dijk was injured in a collision with goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in the 5th round of the English Championship under the auspices of “Everton” (2: 2).
Fabinho: “I cannot completely replace Van Dijk”
Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has stated that he will not be able to replace the injured Virgil Van Dijk.
“Of course I’m not a virgin – he’s the best in the world right now. However, even in this position, I work selflessly.
When I heard that Virgil has been playing for a long time – I was shocked, because first of all, Van Dijk is the leader of the team both on the field and in the dressing room.
He observes that a good mood is maintained in the dressing room – it will greatly diminish us. However, I have to do what Virgil does too. In particular, I tried to organize the team. I will talk to the team and try to be a leader, “said Fabinho.
