Written by admin

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has handed Jurgen Klopp an injury scare.

Van Dijk has been outstanding so far this season and continued his fine form as Holland thrashed Germany on Saturday.

The Reds defender opened the scoring as Ronald Koeman’s side beat the 2010 World Champions 3-0, with Liverpool teammate Georginio Wijnaldum also on target.

But reports in his homeland suggest Van Dijk has now been ruled out of the upcoming friendly with Belgium with a rib problem.

He has been struggling with the injury in recent weeks and it has been decided he will sit out the encounter.
