Netherlands boss provides positive Van Dijk injury update

Virgil Van Dijk will be available for the summer Euros.

The Dutch defender endured a horrific injury in the Merseyside derby back in October.

He is making steady progress and is still on the road to full fitness but Dutch manager Frank de Boer has gave an uplifting update that Van Dijk may return just before summer Euros.

Van Dijk made 38 appearances for the Dutch Eleven and led the team to Nations League final in 2019.

De Boer told Dutch outlet De Telegraaf: “He is busy with so much energy.

“If you see what he’s doing… In my time you were only allowed to kick in the swimming pool.

“If Virgil doesn’t get a kick back and things go a little faster than expected, he should be able to make it for the opening European Championship match on June 13 against Ukraine.

“He is very important for our team, on and off the field.”
