Hope is reborn for Virgil van Dijk

The England champions are hoping to reunite with Dutch center-back Virgil van Dijk before the end of the season.

Seriously injured on October 17 against Everton on a very large Jordan pickford, Virgil van Dijk recently entered his recovery phase after undergoing successful surgery at the end of last month in London. The Dutchman suffered a ruptured ligament in his right knee.

If no prognosis has been put forward by the leaders of Liverpool concerning the duration of the 29-year-old’s unavailability, the medical staff of the English club considered that a return to competition before the end of the season was very unlikely. But it seems that things have changed a lot in a few weeks.

According to the Daily Mail, Virgil van Dijk has resumed individual training with light, low-impact sessions. “We will do everything to help him return,” had confided, some time ago, his coach with the Reds, Jürgen Klopp, at a press conference. The Liverpool defense boss could return to competition before the end of the current sporting year if he continues to move forward in this manner in his resumption schedule.
