According to official website, Virgil van Dijk’s continuing injury recovery was described by Jürgen Klopp as “very promising,” but there is no timeline for the return of the defender.
The Liverpool’s defender is now three months into his recovery from knee ligament injury and as he works towards full fitness, he is in upbeat spirits.
Most recently, on Wednesday morning, Klopp checked in with Van Dijk and later, during his pre-Burnley media previews, he was asked if the Dutchman was likely to play this season.
“I don’t know what is possible and what is not possible; I don’t think I’m the right person to judge that 100 per cent,” the Reds boss responded.
“He looks really good. I spoke to him this morning, I had him on the phone – he is in a really good mood. So it’s all very promising. But I don’t know when he will be back.
“There are for sure a lot of stages still to go over or pass or whatever. That’s clear. I had this injury myself.
“But for the time we are in and for how long he is out now, how long the rehabilitation is going on, he looks really, really promising. But that’s all.”
