Jurgen Klopp rues ‘smash in the face’ Luis Diaz setback

Just as Luis Diaz was getting back to full fitness, the Liverpool winger has suffered yet another injury in Liverpool’s training.

Luis Diaz was injured during Liverpool’s clash with Arsenal at Emirates but the Colombian winger was close to a return to football. However, it seems that he has suffered yet another setback as he was injured in Liverpool’s training this week.

’s setback, saying: "

He was not in the best possible place. It's clear it's a big disappointment for all of us, for him as well,"

Klopp told reporters.

"It was a non-situation in training. Honestly – nothing. 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'.

"Then the news came and it was a proper smash in the face. But that's it now."

Liverpool was back in action in Dubai, facing Lyon and ultimately losing 3-1. They’d be hoping for Diaz to get back to fitness again as they are in dire need of attacking threat.

Klopp also gave updates on other Liverpool players, saying:

"Harvey got a knock before we scored, but I think we were lucky. He looks fine but he feels it. That's normal; there was contact. I hope we were lucky in that moment."
