- Players support teammate in win over Nottingham Forest
- ‘We cannot help, the only thing we can do is fight for him’
Jürgen Klopp described Liverpool’s defeat of Nottingham Forest as the most difficult game he had ever prepared for after Luis Díaz’s parents were kidnapped in Colombia on the eve of the fixture.
Díaz left the team hotel upon hearing of the kidnapping on Saturday night and is being supported by Liverpool staff at home in England as Colombian police search for his father, also called Luis. His mother, Cilenis Marulanda, has been rescued. Colombian police said a reward of up to 200m pesos (£40,000) was on offer to anyone who provides information that leads to the release of the player’s father.
