‘The noises I’m hearing’: Virgil van Dijk says he’s heard something ‘very exciting’ about Liverpool next season

Virgil van Dijk has declared his excitement about playing for Liverpool in the new campaign, with this pre-season expected to be the biggest in recent years.

Speaking to the Irish Examiner, the Dutch international revealed that noises around the Liverpool camp indicate that pre-season will be an intense one this summer, with Jurgen Klopp expected to whip his squad back into shape to challenge for the Premier League title.

Liverpool are expected to finish fifth in the top-flight this campaign and miss out on UEFA Champions League football, yet despite this, there is a true aura of excitement around the club over what could happen next term, and a good pre-season can act as a springboard for such a year.

Indeed, new signings are already expected, particularly in central midfield, and for Van Dijk, the Liverpool centre-back is excited for what’s to come from Liverpool this season both on and off the pitch as pre-season slowly creeps up on the calendar.

Van Dijk said: “The noises I’m hearing, it’s going to be a very intense pre-season with a lot of physical work but also a lot of tactical work trying to get ready for a tough season. That’s very exciting. Players are leaving, hopefully players come in and will be ready for the start of pre-season.”

A strong pre-season can often set the benchmark for a strong year for a club, and Liverpool will be hopeful of doing just that this year, with new signings and an evolved tactical system from Klopp the two key factors that will be spurring the Reds on this summer.

Fresh faces alone could be enough to reinvigorate the team, yet pre-season training and an intense schedule that could get Liverpool back up to scratch could be the boost Van Dijk and the squad need to return to their world-class best for next year.
