Klopp Will Have To Find A Substitute For Virgil Van Dijk

After Van Dijk’s serious injury to his right knee was confirmed, Jurgen Klopp will have to look for a substitute for the Dutchman to try and reduce the effects of the loss.

Liverpool are going through a slightly difficult period. Despite getting a 2-2 draw away to Everton (2-2), the Reds have lost one of their key players for most of the season.

It is Van Dijk, the Dutch defender. The player lasted just 10 minutes of the match against Everton after being caught by a terrible challenge from Jordan Pickford.

Klopp’s concern was obvious and this Monday, it was confirmed that the player will have to have surgery. No time of absence has been stated, but the British media say it will be between six and eight months.

This is a problem for the German coach, because he is missing one of his best footballer. Now, the German is thinking about Joe Gomez as his replacement, ‘Liverpool Echo’ reports.

Nevertheless, the cited media outlet points out that Liverpool have not ruled out signing a defender in the January transfer window. Klopp at least has a defender he can use until the new year.

Van Dijk, in a message published this Sunday, thanked the Liverpool fans and said he would be back on a football pitch soon.
