‘I’d just like to make clear’ – Virgil van Dijk has just reacted to his latest FA punishment

Posted by

Virgil van Dijk has reacted to the further punishment that was handed to him from the Football Association earlier today.

The Dutchman had already served a one match suspension following his red card received against Newcastle at the end of last month but after reacting angrily to referee John Brookes following his dismissal the 31-year-old is set to be suspended for a further game as well as receiving a £100,000 fine.

In a post on his Instagram story (via Fabrizio Romano on X), the Liverpool captain has accepted the decision and admitted he crossed the line with his actions at St. James’ Park.

It’s a huge blow to be without the services of our No. 4 for the trip to Wolves next Saturday but after Joe Gomez deputised superbly for the Dutchman last weekend there’s no need to be too concerned.

The skipper is of course a huge loss but Gomez performed well alongside Joel Matip last weekend as we defeated Aston Villa 3-0 at Anfield.

On first viewing it looked like Brooks had made a dreadful decision to dismiss the defender but when you see it back the Reds star went through Aleksander Isak first before getting the ball.

Let’s hope van Dijk can learn from his mistake and he’s made it clear that he’ll be supporting the lads from the sidelines.

  1. Why is it always a Liverpool player that ends up being made an example of by the FA or any other governing body it sticks out like a sore thumb in their aggressive tenure
    towards the players and the club.
    Even when a player or the club has been villified the powers that be still persist in trying to blacken the clubs and players names
    Absolute disgrace on the powers that be VVD
    is a world class player with an impeccable record yet the FA still feel it was justified to press further charges the FA need to get their own house in order before they go on a mission of retribution to footballers and their clubs

  2. That’s your right doing that to Virgil van Dijk, as long as you do it to the rest of the premiership that they do the same things and gets away with it on rule for one one rule for more. If you follow that up by more punishment, some players that’s fair enough, but if you just pure is Virgil van Dijk as a one off that’s a joke
