Liverpool: Fans pleased about Virgil van Dijk’s withdrawal from Netherlands’ squad

Liverpool fans were pleased with the news that colossus Virgil van Dijk took himself out of the Netherlands’ side on Sunday.

The 28-year-old led the national team to a 0-0 draw against Northern Ireland on Saturday, which was enough to ensure qualification for next summer’s European Championships.

The Reds centre-back will miss Holland’s final qualifier in Amsterdam, and the Dutch FA have explained that his absence is due to ‘personal circumstances’.

With a big game on the horizon against Crystal Palace on Saturday, he now has the chance to rest up before Liverpool’s trip to Selhurst Park.

Van Dijk has been a key player since his arrival at Anfield, helping the Reds reach back-to-back Champions League finals and won the competition last season.

Supporters were reassured about his decision and made their feelings clear on social media. Here you will find some of the best comments from Liverpool fans:
