Liverpool Defender Van Dijk To Have Knee Surgery, Club Confirms

Liverpool Defender Van Dijk To Have Knee Surgery, Club Confirms

Scans have confirmed that the 29-year-old centre-back sustained serious knee ligament damage in Saturday's Merseyside derby against Everton following a reckless challenge by Jordan Pickford.

"Na gani karara fenariti muka samu na kuma ga mataimakin alkalin wasa ya daga tuta sama, na kuma dauka za a je a duba laifin amma hakan bai yi yu wa ba." in ji Klopp.

Jordan Pickford will face no retrospective punishment for his shocking challenge on Virgil van Dijk, according to The Athletic's David Ornstein.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp (L) could be forced into a transfer solution after the injury of defender Virgil van Dijk.

Pickford won't face retrospective action for the tackle and Liverpool have asked for a review of VAR's use in the 2-2 draw.

"For me it was a clear penalty that I saw". Obviously we saw the flag went up, so offside.

"I really do think that if that's the case, the powers that be have got to look at, maybe as a deterrent, how long the player you tackle is out, whether you meant it or not, is how long will be suspended. What can I say?"

There is no shadow of a doubt that Van Dijk was probably the biggest reason behind Liverpool's success story at the backline.

"I think the level we have reached now is a good level".

"Joe Gomez played a sensational game".

Van Dijk has been a crucial presence at the heart of Liverpool's defence since arriving from Southampton and, until limping out of the Everton game, had played every minute of the 74 Premier League fixtures prior to the clash at Goodison Park - a run dating back to September 2018. The center back immediately came off after lengthy treatment and hobbled gingerly around the field to the locker room.

"I looked when Thiago played the ball and I thought it could be offside, it couldn't be, but Hendo's just scored the victor in the derby so we thought 'you can't not celebrate it'". A good game. I am not anxious about the boys.
