Van Dijk unsure over his Liverpool future after Klopp exit


Virgil van Dijk admits he is not sure whether he will be part of Liverpool’s post-Jurgen Klopp era – and says the club’s hierarchy have a “big job” on their hands to replace the German.


The Reds captain does not believe uncertainty over the future will affect their ambitions this season, having continued their challenge on four fronts with a comfortable FA Cup victory over Norwich.


But with the likes of himself, Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold all in the final 18 months of their contracts, there are a lot of significant decisions to be made before the summer.


Asked whether he saw himself being part of the next era, Van Dijk said: "That's a big question. I don't know." 

"The club will have a big job on their hands [after Klopp], that is well known.


"To replace not only the manager but the whole staff and there are so many things that will change.


"I'm very curious which direction that will go in but when that will be announced we will see our situation.


"It will be the end of Jurgen Klopp's era - I am still part of it that's why I don't like to talk about it - and that is my main focus.


"Hopefully we will have the success we all dream of and by then probably there will be more clarification about what the club wants for the future and then we will see."
