It’s official, Virgil van Dijk is likely to miss most of the season. The Dutch defender suffered a knee ligament injury against Everton in this weekend’s Mersey derby and will be out for many months. On social media, he wanted to give his news.
“This afternoon I met with a doctor to plan my recovery from yesterday’s incident. I am completely focused on my recovery and I will do everything to get back as quickly as possible. In football, as in life, I believe that everything happens for a reason and it is important to try to keep your head up despite the ups and downs,” he wrote, taking the opportunity to thank the fans and the people who supported him.
