Liverpool boost: Van Djik begins new rehab phase

Liverpool boost: Van Djik begins new rehab phase”

Liverpool confirmed a day later that the centre-back had to undergo surgery to fix a tendon in his left knee. Fabinho did play as a makeshift centre-half after Van Dijk's injury though he too has missed games through injury.

Liverpool have been given a massive boost, as reports have revealed that defender Virgil Van Dijk has begun light recovery training and could be in line for a return earlier than expected.

The news will come as a significant boost to the Premier League champions, who are in the midst of a defensive injury crisis.

"It's when you get really tested because in some games, if you're in a good team that are better than the rest, you can carry one or two players that aren't quite at it".

Henderson picked up a groin injury during during England's 2-0 defeat to Belgium in the Nations League on Sunday night and returned to Liverpool on Monday for assessment after pulling out of Gareth Southgate's squad ahead of the win over Iceland.

Van Dijk is in the initial stages of his rehabilitation and he is still months from returning to normal training.

"He's a huge miss, but hey, who's to say he won't be back for those big games at the end of the season?"

However, the new ligament takes several weeks to heal and it is around four to six months before an elite athlete can regain the full functionality of the knee - strength, agility and the positioning of the knee under intense pressure. So you never know.

Salah tested positive for coronavirus while on global duty with Egypt on Friday and has once again returned a positive exam on Wednesday.

The Ballon d'Or victor explained: "I have no doubts if these players were fit, then Liverpool are the best team in the land".

"This has now thrown it up in the air a little bit".
