Part of us quite wants Virgil van Dijk in the dressing room until he’s fit and on the bench just as an inspiration to this team-mates!
We’ve missed the Dutchman so, so much this season – confounded by the absences of Joe Gomez and Joel Matip for the campaign – not to mention stand-in Fabinho’s consistent problems as well…
Virg is now back in England and will do the rest of his recovery at Kirkby, the new training facility – and a video has been uploaded of the 29-year-old in the swimming pool doing some rehab.
We don’t think we’ll see him again on the field this term – so it’s something we should be counting down the days on.
Next term though, he’ll be back with us and will hopefully feel no effects from his season long absence.
