Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has provided an update on team-mate Virgil van Dijk’s recovery after surgery. Van Dijk suffered an ACL injury during the Reds 2-2 draw with Everton and underwent successful surgery.

The Reds defender could be out for the rest of the season which is a huge blow for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

“Virgil will return with God’s will,” Wijnaldum told VI.

“It is a difficult time for him; this is the worst thing you can experience as a football player. You go through hell. But I think he is very strong. We FaceTime every now and then and that is very nice.”

Wijnaldum is currently with Netherlands national team for the games against Spain, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Poland.
