Like the majority of the rest of the country, the Dutch defender and the rest of the Reds’ team are currently isolating themselves, with the Premier League season suspended until the end of this month at the earliest.
Although he is unable to engage in typical ground jokes, van Dijk says the team is still in touch via a WhatsApp group, with everyone doing their best to keep morale high.
Asked in an interview with the official Liverpool website, which received the biggest reaction to social media posts, the 28-year-old said: “No idea!
“The group chat is actually quite lively, everyone participates properly. It says a lot about our team, everyone is on it, no one is afraid to say something or try to be funny. “
“Everyone is doing their part and it’s nice to see everyone involved. “
Liverpool and its players are still waiting to find out how their season will end, the Reds having a whopping 25 points ahead of the Premier League and on the verge of their first high-flying title since 1990, when the campaign been suspended.
The Premier League will meet again on Friday with player well-being amidst all the discussion at the top of the agenda and discussion topics.

The matches will almost certainly take place behind closed doors when they resume, with Premier League chiefs now looking to June and seeing the season in July.
