Virgil van Dijk’s knee injury is worse than expected and Liverpool could be without him for the rest of the season, according to reports.

He told the Tifo Podcast: “In terms of the injury itself, it’s just my information, it’s not official, that the damage to Virgil van Dijk’s right knee is perhaps worse than initially feared and extends beyond the ACL.

The Reds defender damaged his anterior cruciate ligament following an accidental – albeit horrendous challenge – from Jordan Pickford in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Everton.

“When it’s an impact injury, which this was, you’re talking the ACL, which potentially could have damaged his PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) and.. could mean the tibia and the fibia banged together.

“If it is any of them, and not just the ACL, then this could be a lot longer for Virgil Van Dijk to come back I would doubt that we are going to see the same level of Virgil Van Dijk when he comes back.”

He will undergo surgery, exactly when we don’t know.” Trevor Sinclair suspected Van Dijk’s injury may have been worse than initially feared and worries the Dutchman may not be the same when he eventually returns.

The former West Ham and Manchester City ace told talkSPORT: “If it was an ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) and without any impact, this injury happens quite a lot, where there is no-one around the player and he twists and all of a sudden he has done his ACL, then that’s fine.
