After Van Dijk has had the operation he will need months of rehab before he can get back on the grass.
“We don’t even want to know it, to be honest,” Klopp added. “It will take time, that’s clear.
“In the end, it’s really like this: all people are different and so we should not limit that by saying ‘for him it was that long, for him it was that long’.
“I think it makes sense from a specific moment in the recovery, in the rehab time, that it becomes individual because then everybody copes differently with it and each body. That’s why [there is] no need for [a timeframe].”
