A number of Liverpool supporters expressed their delight after new footage of Virgil van Dijk working on his recovery emerged.
The Reds have suffered a seemingly endless stream of injuries this season, which has a huge negative impact on their season. It has meant Jurgen Klopp’s side have relinquished their Premier League title in fairly limp fashion, with even a top four finish in doubt.
While a number of individuals have been big losses, no player’s absence has been felt quite like Van Dijk’s, with the Dutchman becoming a colossal figure for Liverpool.
The 29-year-old has been missing since October, having suffered cruciate ligament damage after a shocking tackle by Jordan Pickford in a feisty Merseyside derby.
Van Dijk has been working hard on returning to action, and on Saturday, Liverpool’s official Twitter account posted a video of him in the club’s gym.
Liverpool fans love Van Dijk footage
These Reds fans took to Twitter to give their thoughts on the “magnificent” footage, with lots of understandable happiness on show.
