Liverpool FC suffered a 3: 4 test match bankruptcy on Thursday evening.

Jürgen Klopp's team lost 3: 4 against Hertha BSC.

Innsbruck - Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp * should not be at all satisfied with this test match result.

His team lost to Hertha BSC * 3: 4 in Innsbruck on Thursday.

A spectacular kick - with a very special story.

Because after a 285 day break due to injury, Virgil van Dijk reported back.

The world-class defender made his comeback after a serious knee injury.

"I feel blessed to have so many great people with me," wrote the Liverpool FC defender *, who was substituted on after 69 minutes.

At that time, the Berliners were leading 3-2.

Santiago Ascacibar (21st) and Suat Serdar with a dream goal (31st) quickly put Hertha in the lead, before Sadio Mané (37th) and Takumi Minamino (42nd) equalized after two hair-raising mistakes by goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow and winger Dodi Lukebakio .

After the break, the lively target shooting continued.

Hertha newcomer Stevan Jovetic scored twice after being substituted on (66th, 80th) and proved to be the hoped-for reinforcement.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain set the final point with his goal to make it 3: 4 (88th).

Van Dijk could not avert the defeat.

But of course his comeback was in the foreground.

The Dutchman, who had missed much of the previous season and also the European Championship in the summer, thanked the doctor who operated on the injured knee, the physios, coaches and all employees.

And of course with “my teammates who give me energy and help me to stay positive”, wrote van Dijk on Instagram: “With the fans for their love, support and encouragement - and most of all: with my family, because without them I would be me not."
