Liverpool: 26-year-old player will now miss the 2nd leg against Real Madrid

Luis Diaz

Since his injury in October, Diaz has been spotted accelerating his comeback. There was a chance that the Colombian and Liverpool player could return in time for the journey to Spain as a result of this.

But, according to The Daily Mail, it won’t happen any longer. Despite the fact that Diaz has ‘intensified’ his rehabilitation, it is asserted that this won’t result in an early comeback.

The good news is that since reinjuring himself in training last December, the 26-year-old allegedly hasn’t experienced any setbacks.

Jurgen Klopp reportedly believes his No. 23 still has time to have an impact on Liverpool season as a result. Just not in Madrid.

Luis Diaz set to miss one of the most important match for Liverpool this season

The Newspaper has additional statements from Klopp regarding Diaz’s circumstance. It appears that the management is planning for the forward to play in a maximum of 12 more games this season.

“I’m positive about him that there’s a good chance to have a real impact in 10, 11, 12 games maybe,” said the Liverpool manager.

“We will see how long it exactly takes. It’s estimated that maybe next week he will be warming up with the team and then maybe a week later being in team training. That would be cool.”

Liverpool travel to Manchester City on April 1 and then three days later travel to Stamford Bridge. The week comes to an end on Sunday when league-leading Arsenal travel to Anfield.

That appears to be going to be a hellishly challenging seven days to get through given Liverpool’s present status. But if Diaz is willing to participate, it will be even more tolerable. This year, Liverpool have truly missed him.
