It is known that the injury of Liverpool’s key center back Virgil van Dijk

is more serious than expected. Recently, rumors of a Kim Min-jae transfer have been circulating, but first, Liverpool’s choice is to return to the rental of a prospect.

Liverpool lost helplessly. On the 3rd (hereafter Korean time), we lost 1-3 to Brentford. If they had won this game, they could have ignited the competition for qualification for the UEFA Champions League (UCL), but they were hit hard by Brentford, who showed a strong performance against strong teams.

Bad news overlapped. Liverpool substituted Van Dijk at the start of the second half. Coach Jurgen Klopp said in a post-match press conference that he had called Van Dijk to the bench to prevent injury, saying, “I felt a little something wrong with the muscles.”

It was a more serious injury than expected. Reporter Paul Joyce of Britain’s ‘The Times’ said on the 5th, “The hamstring injury Van Dijk suffered in the match against Brentford is worse than expected. He will not be able to play for the time being.” According to local media, he is expected to miss until the UCL Round of 16 against Real Madrid.스포츠토토

Klopp’s worries deepened. Virgil Van Dijk is an indispensable key player on the defensive line. Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate and Joe Gomes are all injury-prone players, so Van Dijk’s presence is all the more precious. Van Dijk’s injury this time may lead to a team’s sluggishness beyond the injury of one player.
