Klopp called Liverpool ace van Dijk straight after 'scary moment' in Netherlands game

Liverpool defender Jurgen Klopp has admitted it was "scary moment" watching Virgil van Dijk involved in a nasty collision playing for the Netherlands.

The Dutchman was pictured limping in his country's 6-1 victory against Turkey against Tuesday.

Van Dijk quickly allayed fears over a significant injury when speaking to reporters after the World Cup qualifier, and he also had to speak with his Liverpool manager to ease his concerns.

Klopp said: "With Virgil, that was obviously a scary moment, you can imagine. I sent him a message after the game, 'Are you alright?' 'Yes.' '100 per cent?' '200 per cent.' 'Come on, send me a video of you without limping...' 'I'm only limping off.'

"So he called me from the bus and said, 'Boss, I'm fine!' I said, 'Why are you limping then?' He said, 'My wife asked the same!' So, yeah, that was a bit of a tricky moment but apart from that, no, all fine [for the other international players]."
