“It’s harsh. I think I’ll have to watch it for now.”
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp sighed over the departure of key defender Virgil van Dijk.
In the match against Brentford held on the 3rd, manager Klopp called in defender Van Dijk at the start of the second half. It is not uncommon for a central defender to be substituted out after the first half.
It was as expected. As a result of the diagnosis, it was judged to be a hamstring injury. Liverpool also reported the news of Van Dijk’s injury through the club’s official channels. As the post-World Cup season is in full swing, there is a lot of bleeding.
Klopp also said, “The Van Dyke injury surprised us. It’s obviously a big blow. Eventually, we were diagnosed and (the results) were harsh. But we have to talk about it for a few weeks, no more than a month. I hope we can come back quickly.” However, it is not possible to use Van Dyke right now.”
bad news Even before the season, it seemed that Liverpool would continue the two-way structure of the Premier League with Manchester City. Upon opening the lid, the results were different.
In the attacking line, Sadio Mane’s gap is huge. Núñez, who was brought in ambitiously, is seldom getting zero points. Salah, 메이저놀이터 who was joint top scorer in the Premier League last season with Son Heung-min, is also slowing down.
Of course, even Van Dyke was injured at this time. In an already sluggish situation, bad news follows one after another. The team is also ranked 6th. With one less game played, they are 5 points behind 5th place Tottenham. The gap with Manchester United, who are competing for the fourth place, is also seven points.
I wonder if Van Dyke is there. Even the key defenders have to go through the season schedule. The schedule is also tight because of the World Cup in Qatar. There are Ibrahim Konate and Joel Matip, but it’s not easy to fill the Van Dyk void. There are also Joe Gomez and Nathaniel Phillips, but they are 2% short.
Fortunately, the winter transfer window is open. As the situation is, new defenders are expected to be transfused. The reason why defenders such as ‘Naples Iron Pillar’ Kim Min-jae and ‘Inter Signature Center Back’ Milan Schkriniar have suddenly been connected to Liverpool is because of Van Dijk’s injury.
