Virgil van Dijk led the Easter celebrations for footballers past and present, including Thomas Muller, David Beckham and Kaka.
The talismanic Liverpool center-half is currently with a knee injury and is unlikely to feature again for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season after a reckless tackle against him by Everton keeper Jordan Pickford in the Merseyside derby in October.
But the Dutchman posed for a photo as he walked around with someone in a life-size Easter bunny costume, with the caption: “Happy Easter from me and the big guy!” followed by a bunny emoji.
