As Liverpool players return to training with the Premier League’s resumption on the horizon, the Reds have been dealt some brutal news regarding winger Luis Diaz.
The Colombian, who signed for the club from Porto at the start of 2022, recently returned to training from a knee injury he suffered in October but now it is believed that the 25-year old could miss ANOTHER three months with an issue in the same knee.
He is expected to undergo surgery on the problem which he picked up in training as Klopp made his feelings known about the situation after Liverpool’s 3-1 friendly defeat to Lyon yesterday.

“Yeah, he was not in the best possible place. It’s a big disappointment for all of us, for him as well.
“It was a non-situation in training, honestly – he felt something.

“He didn’t feel a lot the next day but we wanted to be really cautious and said, ‘OK, come on, let’s have a look’, and when the news came and it was a proper smash in the face. But that’s it now.”
The attacker could miss up to 17 games for Liverpool with this layoff which is a huge blow for the club as they look to propel themselves up the Premier League table when domestic football returns at the end of the month.
