Virgil van Dijk releases statement about his knee injury.

Van Dijk suffered the setback after colliding with Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in the early stages of Saturday's Merseyside derby 2-2 draw.

He posted a photo on his twitter account revealing the headway of his therapy
Van Dijk statement reads: "This afternoon, I met with a leading consultant to start the process of planning the finer details of my rehabilitation following the incident yesterday. I'm now fully focused on my recovery and will do everything I can to be back as quickly as possible.

"Despite the obvious disappointment, I'm a firm believer that within difficulty lies opportunity and with God's help I'm going to make sure I return better, fitter and stronger than ever before.

"In football, as in life, I believe everything happens for a reason and it's important to try and keep level-headed whether going through the highs or the lows. With the support of my wife, kids and family and everyone at Liverpool, I'm ready for the challenge ahead.

"I'd like to thank everyone for the messages of support. It's meant a huge amount to me and my family, and I'll now be doing everything possible to support my team-mates in any way I can ahead of a big few weeks as I take my own recovery day by day. I'll be back."

As at this time, no time frame has been put on Van Dijk's return but we are confident that a comeback won't be ruled out this season.
