The Netherland coach hopes to be able to use van Dijk's team at Euro 2021.
national team coach Frank de Boer expressed hope that Virgil van Dijk will be ready for Euro 2021.
Van Dijk is currently sidelined with an injury, and it is unclear when he will be able to return to action, but he is recovering well in Dubai. Dutch football legend Clarence Seedorf has also traveled to Dubai to help van Dijk recover faster. Jürgen Klopp has recently claimed that van Dijk is a long way from returning to action, and it is unclear if he will be able to play forLiverpool
De Boer now expressed hope that van Dijk could accompany the Dutch national team in Euros.
“He is busy with so much energy,”
the Netherlands manager told De Telegraaf.
“If you see what he’s doing…in my time you were only allowed to kick in the swimming pool [at this point in his recovery].
“If Virgil doesn’t get a kickback and things go a little faster than expected, he should be able to make it to the European Championship opening match on June 13 against Ukraine.
“He is very important for our team, on and off the field.”
