Virgil Van Dijk Spotted Out On The Pitch For The First Time

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk posted a few updates on social media, having jetted out to Dubai for some warm weather training and recovery.

The Dutch centre-back shared footage just before Christmas of himself doing some keep-ups in a gym, as well as clips of him lifting weights.

But now, for the first time, Van Dijk has been seen out on a pitch for the first time.

In a clip posted to his Instagram story, the defender can be seen on one of the pitches at the training complex in Dubai where he has been training.

In the clip, the Dutchman performs some keep-ups wearing boots for the first time since he suffered the injury.

Liverpool fans are desperate for Van Dijk to return to first-team action, with Joe Gomez also likely out for the rest of the season.

However, despite having returned to the pitch in Dubai, it still seems Van Dijk’s return is some way away.

Former Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren caught up with the Dutchman in Dubai over the weekend and provided an update of his own.
