Virgil van Dijk's message to Liverpool fans as they wait for decision on Premier League resumption

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has urged the club's fans to stay safe as they wait for the Premier League resumption. 

Premier League clubs will reportedly meet on Friday to decide on how to the remainder of the season will be handled, with fears the season might be nulled as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The outbreak has halted all sporting activities around the globe, with major leagues postponed as a result. 

"First of all, stay safe. Stay home. Do the right things, wash your hands and do all the things the government is saying, which you have heard probably every second of the day – but do it because it helps everyone," he said as quoted by the club's official website.

"It helps you but it helps everyone around you as well. The second thing is that we miss you guys as well, we miss being out there, we miss working hard every day and trying to get better and show our qualities to all of you. Just stay put, wait and see, that’s the only thing we can all do anyway.

"The most important thing is to stay safe and look after yourself, your family and the people that are close to you," he added. 

Liverpool leads the English Premier League table standings on 82 points, 25 ahead of second-placed Manchester City. 

The league was initially postponed to April 4th, but the time was later extended until at least April 30th.
