Liverpool had an uncomfortable afternoon on Saturday. The draw in the derby against Everton wasn’t such a disaster, but Virgil van Dijk’s retirement was. The Dutch defender had to be replaced after 11 minutes after a dramatic intervention by Everton goalkeeper Pickford.
The England international was allowed to remain standing, but for Van Dijk it looks like we will not see him on a football field for a long time. After all, beIN Sports reports on Saturday evening that he torn off the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee. As a result, he would be out of the way for no less than seven to eight months.
That means that we will see Van Dijk back on a football field again in May at the earliest. The 29-year-old’s season seems to be over now, although in principle he would just have to get fit for the European Championship.
Liverpool came with more news on Sunday about Van Dijk’s injury. They confirm that the ligaments in the knee are ‘damaged’ and that the Dutch defender will have to go under the knife. There is no time limit for his estimated absence, but it seems certain that the Reds will have to do without him for a while.
POLL: Can Liverpool make up for his absence?
