Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Virgil van Dijk will be out for a long time

Virgil van Dijk has been one of Liverpool's main players for many years. Jurgen Klopp did a great job when he brought in this defender. However, van Dijk has been having problems with injuries lately. Everyone is worried in Liverpool, and the concern is even greater after Klopp confirmed that the Dutchman will be out for more than a month.

"Virg was a surprise for us and a big blow," Klopp said on the press conference, as quoted by eurosport.com.
"The diagnosis was pretty harsh. It's more than a month, but I hope it goes quick.
It's hard, but for him he has played an incredible amount of games in recent years."

Cody Gakpo

Cody Gakpo is one of Jurgen Klopp's reinforcements.

They have high expectations from the young Dutchman. Gakpo could also make his debut in the match against the Wolves. "He looks really promising and fit,"-Klopp said.
"The sessions are intense for him because they're different.

I'm very positive about him. Coming from a new league is always difficult, but we expect a positive impact.
There have been easier moments to sign for Liverpool. This year we can't guarantee CL football, but Cody never asked.

He knew the decision.
He can see the table. But he wants to push the train, that always helps." Klopp also commented on his team's match against Brentford, in which his team lost 3:1. Jurgen Klopp's team is recording bad results this season.

"We should have been 2-0 up before Brentford even had a corner," he said.
"We have to work hard to force luck and then to have the momentum - and not the opponent.
"We lost it and it's the opposite of what we wanted but we want to be more clear, balanced, structured and intense. That's what we're working on."
