Liverpool Fans Cry As Virgil Van Dijk Is Set To Retire Because Of Coronavirus

Virgil Van Dijk Retire Coronavirus
Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has been weighing up his life after football as the Premier League has been without any action since March 13 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Plans are being drawn up for players to return to training with the Reds on the verge of winning the English top-flight title with 25-point gap at the top of the table.

But, the time spent lockdown in his UK home has made the Dutchman think about what his life will be like without football altogether.

“It’s difficult to not be out there, to show our talents, to work hard, just the small things in the game,” the centre-back told BT Sport.
“Also playing for so many fans, winning, the whole build-up to games, training sessions, just seeing the boys.

“We spend so much time together and all of a sudden now you’re not together for like two months, almost.

“It’s different, it’s crazy, and it’s something that you really haven’t felt before, and it makes you appreciate things a little bit more.

“It’s going to be strange, and obviously I don’t want to think about retirement or anything like that, but it’s going to be strange.

“It makes you think how difficult it’s going to be for players to make the decision to retire, because what are you going to do after?

“There’s going to be a period of uncertainty where you have no idea what to do, and that feeling is what we have sometimes at the moment as well, because we have no idea what might happen.” Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
