As Liverpool defeated Monterrey in the semifinals at the WORLD cup on Wednesday night, it was without forsvarsstjernen Virgil van Dijk.

The Dutch defender had to sit, since he bothered by the disease.

And it is also not certain that he will be ready for the final against Flamengo on Saturday night. It tells Jürgen Klopp to Liverpool’s website.

– We’ll see. I don’t know how fast he can recover. We must see, says Jürgen Klopp.

Klopp explains that it was easy to exclude him from the semi-final, when he had not trained fuldtmed Tuesday and Wednesday.

– It was actually an easy decision, because he could not work out. He was on the training field on Tuesday for a few minutes until the media left the session, and so he had, unfortunately, also go.

– Not because of the media, just because he had it good, says the German coach.

With Virgil van Dijk out with the disease started Jordan Henderson and Joe Gomez in central defence for Liverpool.
