Jurgen Klopp does not want to tell how long it will take Virgil van Dijk to return from the serious knee injury he has sustained.
At a glance Sports – Virgil Van Dijk has yet to undergo surgery on the ligament damage he sustained while being tackled hard by Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
Jurgen Klopp held a press conference on Friday, when asked about the exact date Van Dijk will recover, the coach replied:
“I can understand that people really want to know that, but Van Dijk is fine at the moment.
“But when it comes to operations and so on, it doesn't make sense for us to give a timetable. We will do it at the right time ..
“We don't want to know how long he will be out, it will take some time for sure.
“In the end, everyone is different so we can't say for him that long, for him that long.
“There will be a period where he will carry out rehabilitation. Everyone handles it differently, which is why it doesn't need updating. “
Previously, Van Dijk, who played in the Merseyside derby against Everton, was attacked by Pickford.
