Virgil van Dijk had a little bit of laugh on Monday, during the Netherlands’ pre-match press conference.
Ons Oranje will take on Norway in their World Cup qualifier on Tuesday and the build-up to the game has had its drama.
Holland head coach Louis van Gaal injured his hip after he fell off a bicycle whilst going into training with the Dutch national side.
Unfortunately he ended up in a wheelchair, which couldn’t fit into the press conference room, so he had to do his pre-match duties via a live stream link.
And it left Van Dijk on his own in the press conference room as the Liverpool man couldn’t help but laugh at some of the comments that his manager was making regarding his fall and injury.
Van Gaal was asked during his presser if he feels any pain to which he responded: ‘Yes, that’s why I am in a wheelchair’.
The 70-year-old stated that he was in pain, but he had a ‘clear brain’, instead of ‘clear head’.
And van Dijk couldn’t help but burst into laughter now and again.
Here is the hilarious video, enjoy!
