Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted that Virgil van Dijk’s knee ‘doesn’t look good’ as he gave an update on the Holland international’s fitness on Monday.

“Considering the circumstances he is doing well but the knee doesn’t look good.

“It doesn’t look how a knee should but looks okay considering the surgery he had.” Meanwhile, Thiago Alcantara’s recovery from a knee problem is likely to keep him out until January.

Van Dijk ruptured  his anterior cruciate ligament in October following a collision with Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in the Merseyside derby.

“On that day when Thiago got injured in that challenge in the Everton game, there was another bad injury (to Virgil van Dijk) and after the scans it was like one was really bad news and the other one was really good news because nothing was broken, nothing was ruptured and stuff like this.

And speaking ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash against Ajax, Klopp gave a rather concerning update on his star defender’s current condition.

The 29-year-old has since undergone successful surgery, although no time frame has been set for when Van Dijk will make a first-team return.
