Klopp: I was quoted out of context , says Van Dijk


Liverpool captain Virgil van Dijk has addressed recent speculation about his future at Liverpool, asserting that his comments were misconstrued and emphasizing his unwavering commitment to the club.

In response to Jurgen Klopp’s surprising announcement of his departure from Liverpool, Van Dijk was questioned about his potential role in the club’s next chapter.

Initially, the Liverpool captain’s response seemed non-committal, stating, “That’s a big question. I don’t know.”

However, in an exclusive interview with Sky in Germany, Van Dijk clarified his stance: “My comments were taken out of context. Let me be unequivocal: I am fully dedicated to Liverpool Football Club. I cherish the club and its supporters deeply, and my commitment remains steadfast.”

He continued, “This is not about me individually; it’s about us collectively. Nothing has changed. Just five days ago, discussions about my contract weren’t even on the table, so it’s all a bit premature. My sole focus is on ensuring that this season is truly memorable.”

Reflecting on Klopp’s announcement, Van Dijk acknowledged the shockwaves it sent throughout the club. “We’ve all felt the impact of the news,” he said. “But make no mistake, we’re here to accomplish our goals. We’re in a strong position, and we’re determined to pursue our ambitions.”

Van Dijk highlighted Klopp’s influential presence within the team, describing him as a guiding figure. “He’s more than just a coach; he’s a fatherly figure to us all,” Van Dijk remarked. “His absence next season will undoubtedly be felt. However, we’re still in the thick of it, focused on achieving our objectives.”

Klopp’s decision to step down at the end of the season, citing exhaustion, marked a significant moment for Liverpool Football Club. However, Van Dijk emphasized that the team remains resolute in its pursuit of success, echoing the sentiments of unity and determination shared by the players and staff alike.
