Yes, I'll Speak To Virgil van Dijk Ahead of Southampton Return

Joe Gomez

Virgil Van Dijk insists criticism of his start to life as the world's most expensive defender will not affect his preparations for a frosty reception on his return to Southampton with Liverpool on Sunday.

"It was a special story [for Van Dijk at Southampton]".

Having had a mixed start with his new club, van Dijk will be eager to quieten the critics and any home fans who are disappointed in the way his move transpired. The last player to score against them was current Liverpool player Sadio Mane in March 2016. The visitors are going through sort of a rough patch and they have won just one of their last four games in all competitions.

"In every transfer window we hear a lot of speculation, but nothing concrete has come to me until now", he added.

"We always try to play but we will not force it if it's not possible".

"I'm very happy here at Liverpool and I do not see myself out of that club for years to come".

It is obviously quite special, it was not on goal.

"Yes I will for sure talk to Virgil about it", the manager told his club's official website.

"I'm not surprised that he is really, really fantastic and exactly like what we would have expected", Klopp said. Now I know it, so we'll talk about it.

Overall, the Reds have lost just once in their last 17 league games, and we don't expect them to lose this game. We are all influenced by circumstances. It will not be a normal game, how can it be? How can it be?

"It's how football fans are". So they will whistle. Will it have influence?

Klopp, meanwhile, has spoken with Adam Lallana in recent days about his conduct and reminded the midfielder that he can not act in the way he did during an Under-23 game at Tottenham when he was sent off for violent conduct.

The England global was shown a straight red after grabbing Tottenham youngster George Marsh by the neck in a furious reaction to a challenge.

That is the only thing we have to plan around but that is because he had an injury, like we do with Adam Lallana. It was not the challenge for the situation.

"I have a few experiences with European football and I never thought about the European game the week after", said the German.

"But it doesn't change my mind about Adam, of course". That's how it is. After Tottenham had grown into the match, Jurgen Klopp attempted to stem the flow of white shirts by switching to a back-three only for a parried save to be exquisitely slammed into the top corner from the edge of the box.

Luckily the midfielder's ban doesn't count in Premier League games so Lallana could be in the squad on Sunday but I think he'll be named among the substitutes. I was working up in Scotland when he first signed for Dundee United and he was getting more exposure.

"(There are) good players from this area - maybe we should have the scouting department directly in Southampton starting very early!" "In this case, we will see". "I have a contract with Liverpool until 2020 and I hope to keep it".
