Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists the injury sustained by Virgil van Dijk in Tuesday’s friendly with Salzburg is nothing to be concerned about. 

The Netherlands international was forced off in the 55th minute of the Reds’ 2-2 draw in Austria after suffering a cut to his head. 

Klopp, though, confirmed after the game that the 29-year-old is not expected to suffer any lasting effects. 

“Virg only looks like he has a piercing now and has a plaster on it,” he told Liverpool’s official website.

“It should not be, and is, no problem. In the moment it is, of course, not cool but there will not be a problem.”

Liverpool face Arsenal in the Community Shield on Saturday before kicking off their Premier League title defence against Leeds United on September 12.
