Jürgen Klopp: Virgil van Dijk is doing well in injury rehab
Jürgen Klopp reported Virgil van Dijk is ‘doing really well’ as he continues to make the initial steps in his rehabilitation from a knee operation.
The centre-back underwent the successful procedure on damaged ligaments at the end of October. No specific timescale is being placed upon his return by the club.
Asked during his pre-AFC Ajax press conference whether he was in contact with Van Dijk, Klopp replied: “Yes, of course we are in contact. Considering the circumstances, he's doing really well.
“His knee doesn’t look good, to be honest; it doesn’t look like a knee should look - but it looks good for a knee with that surgery and the time he had since the surgery.
“So, yes, of course we are in contact and he's doing well, that's true.”
