Southampton captain and centre-back Virgil Van Dijk is training away from his teammates and has requested to leave the club, according to his manager.
"He is not involved with the team because psychologically he is not 100%," Pellegrino told the press. The Dutchman was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool earlier in the summer, though The Reds were forced to retract their interest after Southampton threatened to take action against their illegal approach for the player. While Southampton continually stress they will not sell the player, it's clear that Van Dijk sees it differently: "When I was talking with him, the boy said that he is not available to play because he wants to leave," said Mauricio Pellegrino. "I need to work with a player that works at 100% to defend Southampton." The Argentine went on to say that he hopes VVD will "review his feelings." Jul 21 - 10:14 PM
