利物浦。維吉爾-范迪克談世界盃影響

利物浦後衛維吉爾-范迪克說,即將到來的世界盃 "絕對不是 "紅軍本賽季開局不佳的原因。

這是尤爾根-克洛普在英超聯賽中的最差開局,他的球隊在六場比賽中只取得兩場勝利,目前排名第八。

球員們的狀態--包括范迪克--一直很不穩定,但這位中後衛堅稱,11月開始的季中世界盃的前景是一個解釋。

"完全不是,完全不是,"范迪克說,他在被埃弗頓守門員喬丹-皮克福德挑戰時膝蓋嚴重受傷,錯過了延遲的2020年歐洲杯。

"我明白,因為我們的開局,每個人都在尋找'原因',因為[與上賽季]的差異太大--但我可以向你保證,這絕對不是原因之一。

"你專注於當時的比賽,這絕對是我們正在做的事情。"

范迪克將在下周帶領荷蘭隊參加對波蘭和比利時的國家聯賽,而卡塔爾世界盃將是這位31歲的老將第一次參加大型比賽。

"我想去,但要做好準備,在我看來,不是專注於希望不受傷,只是要繼續踢球,保持身體健康,並進入一個好的時刻,"他補充說。

"如果你考慮到這一點[受傷],我認為你將會有問題。

"這只是一場一場的比賽--這包括國際足球。對我來說,這是對波蘭和比利時的兩場比賽,然後是布萊頓,所以這將是重點。我並不關注11月發生的事情。"


Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk says the upcoming World Cup is "definitely not" a reason for the Reds' poor start to the season.

This is Jurgen Klopp's worst start to a Premier League campaign, with his side currently eighth after registering only two wins from six games.

The players' form - including Van Dijk's - has been sketchy, but the centre-back is adamant the prospect of the mid-season World Cup, which starts in November, is an explanation.

"Not at all, not at all," said Van Dijk, who missed the delayed Euro 2020 after a serious knee injury picked up in a challenge by Everton keeper Jordan Pickford.

"I understand, because of the start we had, everyone is looking for 'why' because the difference [to last season] is too big - but I can assure you that is definitely not one of the reasons.

"You focus on the game at the time, and that's definitely what we're doing."

Van Dijk will lead the Netherlands in Nations League matches against Poland and Belgium over the next week and the World Cup in Qatar will be the 31-year-old's first major tournament.

"I want to go, but to be ready, in my opinion, is not to focus on hopefully not getting injured, it is just to keep playing, get fit, stay fit and get in a good moment," he added.

"If you think about this [getting injured], I think you are going to have issues.

"It is just game by game - and that includes international football. For me, it is two games against Poland and Belgium and then it is Brighton, so that will be the focus. I'm not focusing on what is happening in November."
