The coronavirus pandemic is giving most of us a lot of spare time to be inside our heads and (over-)think about some things.
Football players aren’t immune to feeling emotions, and Virgil van Dijk has explained how this period of isolation has got him thinking about his long-term future.
The big centre-half told BT Sport that he is desperate for football to resume again, so he can get back to winning ways, play for the fans and see the boys – and it’s made him think about the uncertainly a player must face when retiring.
Take a watch of the video below:
