Following the injury to his right knee suffered on October 9, Colombian striker Luis Díaz missed the squad for the final group stage of the UEFA Champions League, as well as six matches for English Premier League and two for the League Cup (Carabao Cup) 2022/23.
Well, everything seems to indicate that the far left guajiro is willing to follow instructions from the Red medical corps in Merseyside regarding his recovery. The 25-year-old star of the Colombian national team was seen recently in Barranquilla working from the sports headquarters of the Colombian Football Federation (FCF) and shared time with his family and watching the team he loves: Junior from Barranquilla.
At a press conference this Friday, November 11, the German coach Jürgen Klopp delivered news about the physical and health status of the Guajiro attacker, a precedent that provided encouraging news for the player who will have a month off while the FIFA World Cup: Qatar 2022 takes place.
This is what Klopp said about the return to training of his Colombian figure and the plans for what follows at the end of the World Cup:
I'm happy with the number of players we have for our training. Lucho is running now, he is back on the field and he looks great. We have enough time and we need them healthy as it is a long season after the World Cup
This was the unfortunate injury of Luis Díaz on October 9 during Liverpool lost 3-2 against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in London on date 10 of the English Premier League, after the peasant fought for the ball with the Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey:
From that date it was known that the native of Barrancas would be out of the courts for at least six weeks, although there was never an official medical report that specifically detailed what he has and the exact time of his loss.
All in all, the Liverpool coach gave some peace of mind despite the irregular start to the season that has left Díaz and the Portuguese attacker Diogo Jota:
< blockquote class="color_figcaption">Lucho seems to heal quickly, but obviously we have to be quite careful with that anyway. It could also have been worse, we know that too, the way he moved after the game
In any case, in Liverpool they are waiting for Lucho for the commitments they will play in the Boxing Day December. The German strategist was consulted about the state of casualties suffered by the team and delivered not so discouraging news for this part of the year:
Milner is back in training, Keita is running. Luis Díaz is back on the field of play and running, he looks very good
From 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. m. Colombian time this Saturday, November 12, Liverpool will receive Southampton FC at Anfield Road for matchday 16 of the English league and although it is quite probable that Díaz will not even be on the substitute bench, his presence will be vital in the face of the break season for Qatar 2022, a competition in which Liverpool will lose the following seven footballers:
Alisson Becker 🇧🇷
Ibrahima Konaté 🇫🇷
Trent Alexander-Arnold 🏴/? class=”paragraph”>Jordan Henderson 🏴 🇺🇾
< p class="paragraph">Virgil Van Dijk 🇳🇱
For his part, Klopp's assistant coach Pepijn Lijnders , He had already anticipated that this week Díaz would return to activity with the team to continue his recovery. Days ago, the winger said he was present at the sports headquarters of the Colombia team in Barranquilla to continue his training.
On December 19, the team Merseyside have an important game scheduled for round 4 of the Carabao Cup against Manchester City and the Colombian left winger is hoping to bounce back to defend the title he won earlier in London against Chelsea FC.
