Barcelona and Lyon stars feature in a ‘get well soon’ video for Van Dijk

The official Twitter account of Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB) paid tribute to injured Liverpool defender before their friendly against Spain later today.

When translated in English, the caption on the video read – “Big man. Bro. Virgil. Our captain. We’re thinking about you. Come back stronger!”

The video features several Netherlands players such as Frenkie de Jong (Barcelona), Memphis Depay (Lyon), Luuk de Jong, Daley Blind and Van Dijk’s Liverpool teammate Georginio Wijnaldum.

The LFC center-back tore his anterior cruciate ligament after a rash challenge from Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford during the Merseyside derby.

It’s a long way back for Van Dijk as he is rumoured to be out for the entirety of 20/21 season but the big defender can take solace with the amount of love and encouragement he is receiving from the fans & players alike.

Check out the video below –
