Liverpool players pay perfect tribute to Luis Diaz during winger's family kidnap ordeal

Luis Diaz was absent from the Liverpool side for Sunday’s clash with Nottingham Forest at Anfield after his parents were kidnapped in Colombia on Saturday, with his father still missing

Diogo Jota and Liverpool’s players showed team-mate Luis Diaz that he was on their minds as they celebrated their first goal against Nottingham Forest in the wake of their absent winger’s terrifying family kidnap ordeal.

Jota slotted home in the 31st minute of the clash at Anfield after Forest goalkeeper Matt Turner had parried an effort from Darwin Nunez. The Portuguese, who had effectively come into Liverpool’s Premier League side for Diaz, was all alone at the back post and slotted in with ease.

The forward then ran towards the Reds bench with his team-mates and picked up a Diaz No.7 Liverpool shirt, holding it aloft to the crowd. Liverpool supporters responded by singing Diaz’s name as they showed him that he was very much on their minds.
