Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Virgil van Dijk is line to make his return from long-term injury in Thursday’s friendly with Hertha Berlin.
The 30-year-old hasn’t played for the Reds since October of last year, after undergoing surgery on the ACL injury he sustained during Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Everton.
Ahead of the friendly with the Bundesliga side Klopp revealed that Van Dijk is set to play in the match at Tivoli stadion.
‘I hope, I am not sure, that there is the opportunity that Virgil could play a few minutes.’ Klopp told Liverpool’s official website.
‘He looks really good in training and maybe we can bring [him in], but I need to have some final conversations. He looks ready and we will see.’
