van Dijk sends poignant message to Liverpool fans amid coronavirus outbreak

Virgil van Dijk has urged Liverpool fans to stick together in a poignant message on social media amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Reds' defender and his teammates have been forced out of their Melwood training base as they wait to hear how the Premier League run-in will be concluded.

It looks as though Liverpool will be given the opportunity to seal their first league title in 30 years when they return to action, as they need just six points from their final nine games.

But van Dijk has clearly put football to one side for the time being, and reached out to the club's supporters with a touching post on Twitter.

"I just wanted to send a message to say I hope everyone is doing OK in these difficult times," the Dutch international wrote.

"We must all look after each other in what is tough circumstances for everyone across the whole world.

"Please stay safe. We will be back! You’ll Never Walk Alone."

There were concerns the season would be voided, denying Liverpool their maiden Premier League title.

But UEFA's decision to move the summer European Championship tournament to 2021 has now opened up a space to complete the club campaign.

That gives clubs until June 30 to complete their fixtures, which has led to suggestions all of the remaining matches will be played behind closed doors.

Liverpool will be itching to get back to business after losing their last match to Atletico Madrid which saw them eliminated from the Champions League.
