Van Dijk missed out on nearly the entire season last term. He suffered a bad injury in the game against Everton, and Liverpool suffered as a consequence.

But, as expected, the Dutchman is now on the road to recovery. And after a few teasers in recent months, Van Dijk used his Twitter account this weekend to show himself preparing for the new campaign.

Van Dijk can be seen in the pictures very much getting involved in the ball work aspect of training. That, of course, is something Liverpool fans will love to see.

To say Van Dijk was missed would be an understatement. Manchester City signed Ruben Dias and won the league at a canter. That says all you need to know about howe important a top central defender is.

The good news is, Van Dijk will be back. There were fears at one point that he might not play again, or would be out for much longer. But the big Dutchman is made of strong stuff, and seems ready to return.

Reds fans, then, loved what they saw from Van Dijk’s latest update and plenty took to Twitter to express just how much they want him back.
