Klopp confirms what we already knew: big Virg is available for Southampton
It wasn't much of a secret, what with Virgil Van Dijk spotted training at Melwood with the team on Monday morning, but we have usually found it's best to wait for Jurgen Klopp's official confirmation.
So that's what we've got today, as Jurgen confirmed that big Virg is fit to face Southampton on Friday evening, after returning to train normally with his team mates.
Speaking in his pre-Southampton press conference, he said: "He trained normally, everything OK. Yesterday we only had a second recovery session but he was involved in that.
"I heard nothing different, that he could maybe not train today. No, it looks all OK."
Big Virg had been seen limping later on in the 2nd half on Sunday, while he was later spotted with an ice-pack strapped to his ankle. It's all good though, nothing to worry about!
