"The news from Colombia gives us a bit of hope. We are waiting for the real good news," said Klopp, who confessed that "everything depends" on Luis Diaz"whether it is available or not, and we will not force anything."

Klopp said the 26-year-old forward trained this week ahead of the game at newly promoted Luton.

The Colombian striker's mother was rescued hours after the kidnapping in the city of Barrancas last weekend, but his father, Luis Manuel Diazremains in the power of his captors.


The Colombian guerrilla of the National Liberation Army (ELN) announced on Thursday that it will release "as soon as possible" the father of Liverpool soccer player Luis Díaz, kidnapped five days ago in the north of the South American country.

The announcement came hours after the Colombian Government accused the rebel group of kidnapping Luis Manuel Díaz, father of the Colombian striker, and demanded his immediate release.

"The National Liberation Army is going to free Mr. Díaz's father as soon as possible," said the ELN delegate for peace dialogue with the Government, Juan Carlos Cuéllar, in a message broadcast on the social network X.
