'Superman' Van Dijk must be rotated by Liverpool, explains Milner

 The commanding Dutch defender remains a talismanic presence for the Reds, but he is still working his way back from a serious knee injury

Virgil van Dijk remains "Superman" in the eyes of many at Liverpool, but James Milner has pointed out that even players of that stature have to be rotated when working their way back from serious injuries.

That is the case for the commanding Dutch centre-half at Anfield, with the 30-year-old Netherlands international sitting out much of the 2020-21 campaign with knee ligament damage.

He has returned to Jurgen Klopp's plans this season, but was rested for a Champions League group-stage opener against AC Milan before returning to the fold for a 3-0 Premier League win over Crystal Palace.
