Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp confirms length of Virgil van Dijk injury lay-off pre-Wolves | Football | Sport
Van Dijk was substituted at half-time in Liverpool’s 3-1 defeat by Brentford. The 31-year-old appeared to have suffered a hamstring injury, prompting concern that he could remain absent for a long period.
However, Klopp has now revealed that while it is not a ‘short-term’ injury, the centre-back will miss the next few weeks. It comes after Van Dijk saw a specialist in the aftermath of Monday’s game.
“It’s not a short-term and I had longer-term injuries as well in my career as a manager,” the Liverpool boss said. “So, it’s somewhere in between. He will be out for a few weeks, definitely.”
Liverpool suffered their fifth defeat of the Premier League campaign against Brentford. The Reds are sixth in the top-flight, seven points off the Champions League qualification places.
