Liverpool

Dutch great Ruud Gullit believes Virgil van Dijk must play for Liverpool this season if he’s to make Holland’s Euros squad.

 

Gullit believes that Holland would want Van Dijk to play a couple of games for Liverpool before he’s even considered for this summer’s Euros.

 

“I know for sure that if you saw the seriousness of the injury in the beginning, you already know that you’re not going to play a lot of games with Liverpool,” Gullit told beIN Sports.

 

He added: “But you need to have a goal when you have an injury, and his goal was to at least get fit for the Euros, if it’s possible.

 

“His doctors would say that as well, is it possible.

 

“Of course the club wants him at least to play a couple of matches before he does, I think in Holland we want that as well.

 

“I can understand that he has that goal, and I hope that he does get it.

 

“If he’s going to be fit, he doesn’t have a lot of rhythm, so it’s to be seen.

 

“For Holland, it’s the most important thing that he plays some matches already with Liverpool.”

Estadio Deportivo says Spurs are among a number of potential suitors interested in taking on the player, who currently plays his football at Real Betis.

Barca currently own 50 per cent of the player but have the option to purchase another 30 per cent from Betis if they so wish.
