Christian Kabasele confuses Liverpool fans with tweet after the club confirm Van Dijk's illness

 Christian Kabasele confused Liverpool fans by tweeting his contract

Liverpool are in serious doubt of being without Virgil van Dijk for their clash against Leicester City on Wednesday.

Van Dijk has started every game so far this season for Liverpool, helping them achieve the best defence in England's top tier.

However, reports emerged that Van Dijk is suffering from illness ahead of the tie, putting his participation in doubt.

Jurgen Klopp was always going to be questioned about Van Dijk's health in his press conference on Tuesday.

“Virg was a little bit ill, but he trained yesterday and will train today, so we will see," he replied to the media, per

That will come as a relief to Liverpool fans, who will undoubtedly want to see him play; especially given the problems they have at the back.

Liverpool tweeted out the update in Van Dijk's fitness, but it seemed to provoke a very odd response from Watford defender, Christian Kabasele.

The Belgium international saw the tweet and replied with a picture of his contract.

The tweet has since been deleted but, fortunately, screenshots have been taken...


It is strange. It left a number of people confused by what he meant.

There is a theory that Kabasele has attempted to wind up Liverpool fans, though.

Kristof Terreur, a Belgian journalist, believes he sent the copy of his contract to highlight that football club's aren't allowed to reveal the contents of any medical information obtained the club, unless they have consent in writing from the player.

So, with that theory in mind, it seems that Kabasele has tried to catch Liverpool red handed when it comes to giving an update on Van Dijk's health.

Kabasele has provided the answer in another tweet, though.

After the original tweet had been deleted, Kabasele wrote: "I might have a problem (hacking) with my account so if I tweet something strange relax its not me."

That clears things up then.
