Virgil van Dijk opens up on null and void fears before Everton tie. Liverpool can take a step closer to winning the Premier League title today against Everton.
Liverpool superstar Virgil van Dijk has revealed he wasn’t concerned about the Reds being deprived of winning the Premier League title with the season being declared null and void.
He discussed his time on the sidelines while the league was suspended. Liverpool will return to action this evening in the Merseyside Derby, and can go within three points of winning the title with a win.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Van Dijk opened up on time away from the pitch, as well as the inevitability of lifting the title without fans present.
“I can’t wait to be out there again,” he said. “We can do what we love to do. I wish the fans could be there, too, but we can’t change that.”
“It was strange to stop so abruptly and being in the unknown. Not knowing when we will start again.”
“Sometimes people were putting things in the media saying the league should be cancelled. You read these things because you have plenty of time to read when there is suddenly no football being played.”
“I wasn’t worried but being left in the dark, not knowing what was going to happen, personally I hate that.”
“You ask questions to certain people who know what is happening behind the scenes and it was pretty clear there was no option at all to cancel the league.”
