Virgil van Dijk did not play for Liverpool in extra time in the FA Cup final against Chelsea at Wembley. The Netherlands captain was substituted for Joel Matip at the end of 90 minutes and watched extra time from the bench. While waiting for news about Van Dijk’s condition, the change created concern in the ‘network’ fans, especially thinking about the Champions League final, on May 28 against Real Madrid in Paris.

In fact, until the player himself or Jürgen Klopp give information in this regard, it is unknown if the German coach replaced him to avoid further physical wear or due to some physical problem.

To this is added that Mohamed Salah, ‘top scorer’ of the Premier, retired injured in the 33rd minute, apparently due to a groin problem. He replaced Diogo Jota.
