Scoring in Lyon’s 4-1 win over Monaco on Sunday night, the Dutchman unveiled a T-shirt that read:
“Virgil, stay strong my brother.”
Van Dijk is expected to be out for several months after suffering a knee injury in a clash with Jordan Pickford
during the recent Merseyside derby.
Liverpool fans were furious when the Everton goalkeeper escaped punishment for the lunge,
which was also not given as a penalty due to the defender being offside.
Having played with Van Dijk in the Netherlands national team since the center-back’s 2015 debut,
Depay took the time to send a message to his team-mate.

Another Twitter user joked: “When’s the funeral?”
