Netherlands national team manager Ronald Koeman confirmed that Virgil van Dijk is fit despite leaving the team.
The former Everton coach said there was a previous agreement with Liverpool to allow Van Dijk to play against Germany before being sent back to the club to rest after playing through the pain of a niggling rib injury. It comes as welcomed news to Liverpool fans as Sadio Mane's status is up in the air after suffering a broken thumb while Mohamed Salah has also suffered an injury during the international break. Said Koeman: [Van Dijk] "He's back in Liverpool but he is ready to play for next week. He's taken a rest. He spoke to the manager. The medical staff of the Dutch national team spoke to the medical staff of Liverpool and made the decision that he was playing only the Germany game and then after back to Liverpool. He is ready to play next weekend." Oct 15 - 9:31 PM
