Luis Diaz’s wife shares heartfelt message as Liverpool star returns after six-month layoff



Luis Diaz returned to the game for Liverpool on Monday night against Leeds after a six-month break and his wife shared an emotional message on social media to mark the occasion.

Luis Diaz made a much-anticipated return to action on Monday night when he came on for Liverpool in the final ten minutes of Monday night’s 6-1 win over Leeds.

Diaz was out before the start of the World Cup after suffering a knee injury in October that required surgery. It has seen Liverpool go several months without one of their top attacking threats in what has been a difficult season for the Reds.

With his comeback in a 6-1 win over Leeds, there will be optimism on Merseyside that the 26-year-old Colombian can provide some of the spark he showed in the opening months of the season to help Klopp to save the European to help football. . What often goes unnoticed, however, is the emotional toll these injuries take on players’ families.

This was reflected in a post shared by Diaz’s wife, Gera Ponce, on Instagram today, with the winger’s return being celebrated by his family. She wrote (in Spanish, translated to English): “How immense the admiration and pride that you inspire in us is immense. The most sublime moment after all this recovery time is to see you return to [the pitch].

“This feeling that we missed so much. And you of course. Most of all. You wanted today. I affirm that all the sacrifices and difficult moments during these months have been worth every second. That God is good and his time is perfect. “I love you so much and I’m so glad to know you’re back doing what makes you happy. Go my champ!”

Diaz had scored 10 goals in his first 38 appearances for Liverpool, all in 2022, but now with his return he is being welcomed back by the club.

That’s a sentiment echoed by coach Jurgen Klopp, who explained in his pre-match press conference last week how he felt like a “new signing”. Klopp even praised the player’s personal progress over the past six months.

He said, “It sure is (like having a new resource). He has developed a lot. His English is improving so he’s really settled in. He was here every day,” Klopp said.

“He really matured again, much more comfortable than he was in the beginning with everything in a new country. He is like a breath of fresh air every day he is in training. He loves it out there, I said in the beginning when he came that he cannot train without a smile on his face and that’s something really special and that’s exactly how he acts now.”

Diaz signed for the Reds in January 2022 in a deal worth 45m euros (£37.5m) from Portuguese club, Porto, and the winger announced his return with a message of his Instagram after the match, in a post which read: “So happy to be back, amazing three points,”


Rafael Van der Vaart tells Liverpool that Ryan Gravenberch is better than Jude Bellingham in ‘every way’

Liverpool had a long-term interest in Jude Bellingham but cooled their pursuit as speculation over a Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch transfer grew

Rafael van der Vaart thinks Ryan Gravenberch is better than Jude Bellingham amid Liverpool links

Speculation surrounding the Dutchman has grown after representatives of the 20-year-old reportedly met with the Reds to discuss a possible summer transfer. Recent reports suggest Jurgen Klopp’s side are keen to meet the Bayern Munich midfielder’s salary demands.

Gravenberch has made 18 Bundesliga appearances this season, with just 4% coming in the guise of Julian Nagelsmann and then Thomas Tuchel – after the former Chelsea manager took over for the young German following his dismissal. Liverpool, meanwhile, have decided to tone down their interest in the Borussia Dortmund starlet after his longtime admiration.

The Reds face a busy summer as they need to sign several midfielders in the next transfer window. Their ambitions were reassessed after chasing the England international but have now turned to other goals rather than spending a big chunk on a player.

But Van der Vaart, who played for Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League, believes Gravenberch is ahead of Bellingham when it comes to development, but insists his time would be better spent returning to his native Holland and being loaned out. former club Ajax.

“What I think is the big difference (between the two players); Bellingham is a step down at a club and still playing,” Van der Vaart told Ziggo Sport. “I think Gravenberch is better than him in every way. Especially physical.

“Do you know what is most important when you go to a new club? The first two weeks. You have to show in every training session, every training game that you are a justified purchase,” he added.

“It would actually be good for Gravenberch to go on loan to Ajax again. You just have to start playing football.”
