Liverpool News: Defender Virgil van Dijk not happy with UEFA decision

Liverpool News: Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk is the latest player to denounce the frantic UEFA Nations League schedule. The centre-half has come out to question UEFA’s decision for the need to play the tournament at the end of what has been an exhausting season.

With four UEFA Nations League matches scheduled this month, Van Dijk believes players are put at greater risk of injuries.

The Dutch international has played 59 games for his club and country since returning from his ACL injury. The serious injury kept him out of action for nine long months.

The former Southampton player played a crucial role in Liverpool’s hopes for the quadruple this season. Although they eventually came short of the finishing line in the Premier League as well as the Champions League.
