Liverpool coach, Jurgen Klopp has come out to say that he’ll be taking no risk on the fitness of Van Dijk and Joe Gomez. He recently revealed that his defensive duo will definitely not be rushed back into action.
According to him, their return date is still unknown at the moment, but they currently look good enough in training to be fully fit as soon as possible.
Klopp added that everyone will just have to be patient with the players till they are fully recovered.
His words, “It would still be a surprise, unfortunately.”
“But they look really good. Look, I think, they do everything, they play football, we keep them in training, we do the things we can do, they don’t too much and stuff like this.”
“We just have to be patient – we prepare for a full season, not for a pre-season game. I will not risk it for a game here, so we have to see.”
“We have a lot of games still coming, pre-season games, but I don’t see them being involved for the next one.”
