Liverpool FC: Van Dijk extends “long term”



Liverpool FC: Van Dijk extends "long term"

Jürgen Klopp can continue to rely on his defense chief at Liverpool FC: As the Reds announced on Friday, Virgil van Dijk has signed a new “long-term” contract with the Reds.

The club did not provide any information about the term of the contract, according to media reports, the new contract is valid until summer 2025. Liverpool had previously tied goalkeeper Alisson, midfielder Fabinho and full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold to themselves.

“I am very relieved, happy and proud,” said 30-year-old van Dijk, who missed much of the previous season and the European Championship in the summer due to a serious knee injury: “The last season was forgotten. Now I feel like myself again good and fit. I’m ready for the challenge from this weekend. “

Klopp’s team starts the new season on Saturday (6.30 p.m. / Sky) at Norwich City. In contrast to title rivals Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City, Liverpool has held back on the transfer market. The former Ibrahima Konate from Leipzig came for 40 million euros, but otherwise Liverpool focused on keeping its top performers.
