The discomfort with which Luis Díaz left the lawn of the Emirates Stadium last Sunday had its reason for being. It is that the Colombian understood that it was a serious injury to his left knee, which confirmed the recovery times with the passing of hours and after in-depth studies.

“From six to eight weeks”, had been Jürgen Klopp’s forecast after Liverpool’s 3-2 defeat at the hands of Arsenal and that he had to change the one born in Barrancas (La Guajira) at 6 minutes of the second half, replaced by Roberto Firmino.

The truth is that the former Porto appeared on the networks this Wednesday to show optimism for the future, aware that his return to the courts will be in December, probably after the World Cup.

“Thank you very much for the messages of support! I will come back stronger,” the 25-year-old attacker wrote on his Instagram account. Before the break for the World Cup there will be 10 games in which he will have to be absent. Only on December 26, against Aston Villa, could he reappear.

Diaz scored 4 goals in 12 appearances across all competitions this season, a tally trailing only Roberto Firmino (6) and Mohamed Salah (5) among Reds players.
