Loads of Liverpool fans are freaking out over an update from the Reds’ trip to Doha, as reports confirm Virgil van Dijk is not in training.
It’s fair to say the Anfield faithful are having a full blown meltdown on Twitter after The Daily Mail’s Dominic King confirmed van Dijk is not with the first-team for their session in Doha.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are of course preparing for the Club World Cup, and while the reason for the Dutchman’s absence has not been revealed – he may just be resting – fans are not holding back with their reactions to the news.
Georginio Wijnaldum is the only other player not training with the group, and he was injured in Saturday’s win over Watford, so there may well be reason for concern regarding van Dijk’s absence.
The 28 year-old has almost become a mythical figure on Merseyside, as he just appears to strong, too fit and too fast for every striker he welcomes to Anfield – just ask Troy Deeney.
Needless to say, Klopp would have a crisis on his hands if the defender is injured as Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip are already out, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
