Van Dijk's injury looks worse than first thought

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 1,271

According to a report in 'The Athletic', Virgil van Dijk's injury is more serious than first feared and the player will not be back until next season.

Not good times for Van Dijk. The Liverpool central defender suffered a serious injury against Everton in the Merseyside derby and they had already said he has torn his ACL

However, it seems like it is more serious than before. According to 'The Athletic', there is more damage than that ACL damage and other areas are also affected. That means he will be out for even longer

The cited source says Van Dijk's season is over. An injury to the ACL usually sees people out for six to eight months so the Dutchman would have been back for the very end of the season or Euro 2021 at the very worst. 

But 'The Athletic' hints at the fact there could be more damage than revealed in the initial tests.
