Liverpool star Van Dijk issues injury update after Netherlands scare

Virgil van Dijk has issued an injury update after the Netherlands thumping win over Turkey.

The Liverpool defender was in fine form as his team claimed a 6-1 victory in Amsterdam.

Van Dijk appeared to suffer a knock towards the end of the game.

But speaking after the final whistle, he reassured Reds fans by stating, via the Liverpool Echo: "I'm fine, luckily. I'm already over it. Maybe because I am so big, they think I am acting, because when I go down, it goes in quite a slow way."

The 30-year-old missed the majority of last season with a knee injury.

He has already looked in impressive touch over Liverpool's first three Premier League games.
