Photo: €55M Liverpool star is built different with image showing him training on his own during his holiday

Virgil van Dijk has been pictured preparing for the new Premier League season on his holiday before he reports for pre-season.

James Milner (predictably) won the lactate test once again this summer – he’s won it every season since joining the club.

But elsewhere, van Dijk is prepping to return and make another mammoth impact on a Liverpool season.

This time, he should be free from any niggling doubts he may have had about his knee last season upon his return from a preventable ACL tear.

The Dutchman is yet to report for pre-season but should be back late this week. He “rubbed shoulders with Rangers” in Portugal, This is Anfield reports, bumping into the Scottish side at “a popular destination for Liverpool players in Algarve, Portugal, at a high-performance campus designed for athletes.”

He has a lengthened holiday due to playing for Holland after the end of last season.
