Liverpool centre-back Virgil Van Dijk continue his recovery from a horrific injury which he sustained during the Merseyside derby on October 17, 2020, after a collision with Everton no.1 goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Although, the good news now is that, Van Dijk is feeling no more pain on his knee, and could return any moment from now as he's already back in training. Though, the season is already close to its climax with no less than seven matches remaining to end this season, Van Dijk would be putting his hope on return for Netherland, but he has been told by medical experts to forget about Euro 2020 and focus more on his return for Liverpool.

Virgil Van Dijk haven't kick a ball for Liverpool since October, 2020, but he is stepping up positively to foster his return for Jurgen Klopp's men.

Joe is outside running now and all these kind of things, which is obviously always a big step after all injuries”, Klopp said.

Liverpool have been badly affected by injuries this season, Virgil Van Dijk, Joel Matip, Jordan Henderson and Joe Gomez are all ruled out due to Injury. But they're all stepping up their recovery according to Jurgen Klopp, so no doubt they will all be ready to play again for the Reds.
