Virgil van Dijk: I will return better, fitter, and stronger

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk, who will undergo surgery on his injured knee, said he would return better than before.

Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk promised to come back “better, fitter and stronger,” after knee surgery.

The champions of the Premier League announced on Sunday, that the defender had damaged ligaments in his knee and is likely to miss much of the rest of the season.

Van Dijk was grateful for the support he received while he was preparing for surgery, he said in a statement posted on Twitter.

“This afternoon I met with a leading consultant to start the process of planning the finer details of my rehabilitation following the incident yesterday,” he wrote.

“I’m now fully focused on my recovery and will do everything I can to be back as quickly as possible.”

“Despite the obvious disappointment, I’m a firm believer that within difficulty lies opportunity and with God’s help, I’m going to make sure I return better, fitter, and stronger than ever before.”

“In football, as in life, I believe everything happens for a reason and it’s important to try and keep level headed whether going through the highs or the lows. With the support of my wife, kids, family, and everyone at Liverpool, I’m ready for the challenge ahead.”

“I’d like to thank everyone for the messages of support, it’s meant a huge amount to me and my family, and I’ll now be doing everything possible to support my team-mates in any way I can ahead of big weeks ahead as I take my own recovery day by day. I’ll be back.”
