Virgil Van Dijk has been Liverpool’s chief and the most critical part in Jurgen Klopp ‘s machine since his £75million arrival in January 2018. But now, without him, they’ll have to try to cope.
The Liverpool center back sustained a potentially season-ending injury to his knee after a shocking tackle from Jordan Pickford on Saturday in a controversy-ridden Merseyside Derby-which went unpunished.
On Saturday, Liverpool was unhappy with speculation that Van Dijk would miss an ACL injury for the rest of the season, but was unable to distract him from the fact that the issue looks serious and may sideline him for months. So, should the worst nightmares of Klopp come true and Van Dijk be out for an extended time, who will he turn to in his absence to step up to the plate?
