Klopp reveals the severity of Van Dijk’s Injury

Written by on October 18, 2020

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk’s knee injury is “not good”, according to manager Jurgen Klopp.

Van Dijk was hurt in a rash challenge by Everton keeper Jordan Pickford in the first half of Liverpool’s 2-2 draw on Saturday.

The Netherlands defender, 29, could not continue and will have a scan, along with Thiago Alcantara, who also suffered a knee injury.

“Virgil played I don’t know how many games in a row, he plays with pain, but he couldn’t play on,” said Klopp.

“That’s not good.”

Liverpool’s claims for a penalty from the incident were turned down as Van Dijk was ruled to be offside before England number one Pickford clattered into him.

“It was a clear penalty I saw and then we saw the flag went up. I thought they would still look at the foul but that didn’t happen,” said Klopp.

“I don’t want to say Jordan Pickford wanted to do it but it is not a challenge a goalie can do in the box.”
