Jürgen Klopp confirms Luis Diaz’s return amidst parents kidnap crisis

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has delivered an update on Luis Diaz as the Liverpool forward continues to deal with the ongoing crisis for his family in Colombia. Diaz missed Liverpool game against Nottingham Forest last week following the kidnapping of his mother and father in Colombia.

Jürgen Klopp was asked if there is any update regarding the Colombian at his pre-Luton Town press conference on Friday morning, the manager said: “No, not really.

“He was in training two days ago, he had yesterday a session and will be part of the team. We must wait – if he feels right, he will be here and train with us.

“The session he had with us because then we were not here, you could see that when he is with the boys it is fine, it’s OK. But you could see as well that he didn’t sleep a lot.

“We have just to see how he is, and then we go from there. The news from Colombia, I didn’t get them personally, I always get them forwarded. Everything that gives us a bit of hope is good. We are waiting actually for the really good news, but that’s it pretty much.

“I cannot really say what we will do because we just wait where we can pick up the boy from and go from there. But it’s all about him, that he makes himself available or not, and I will not force anything.”

Diaz’s parents were kidnapped last week Friday, and few hours after the horrible situation, reports revealed that his mother had been released while the Colombia government continues to work hard in rescuing his father from his adaptors.
