Liverpool have had a rollercoaster season full of ups, downs and refereeing clowns. The Reds have somehow climbed to the top of the Premier League. This has all been without one of the team’s most talismanic players. He could be back sooner than expected. Some Liverpool fans have been in awe of Virgil van Dijk after he posted an injury update.
Virgil van Dijk injury
Early on this season we saw one of the most controversial Merseyside Derbies of recent times.
The Reds went to Everton and dominated the game yet they left with just a point and two devastating injuries.
Early on in the tie Jordan Pickford recklessly lunged at Virgil van Dijk, rupturing the Dutchman’s ACL.
Bizarrely, the goalkeeper wasn’t sent off for the incident.

The game went on to be marred further by contentious VAR decisions and Richarlison’s petulant scything down of Thiago.
We’ve seen neither Thiago nor Van Dijk since the Derby.
Virgil van Dijk injury update
This week Virgil van Dijk posted an injury update on social media.
The Dutchman published a video of him working hard in the gym.
He can be seen lifting weights and working with the ball.
The update has come as a welcome surprise for Kopites.
Many are utterly in awe of the progress he’s made in such a short space of time.
We were told that he would be out for the season but that prognosis is beginning to look overly pessimistic.

Well wishes poured in.
We can’t wait to have him back in the side.
It’s been an impressive recovery so far.
But of course we’re going to get carried away.
