Jurgen Klopp reveals whether Luis Diaz can return following kidnapping

Luis Diaz will decide whether or not he is ready to play for Liverpool at Luton on Sunday, according to manager Jurgen Klopp, with the forward's kidnapped father still missing.

On Thursday the Colombian government said Diaz's parents - his mother was released earlier this week - were kidnapped last weekend by the guerrilla group National Liberation Army, also known as the ELN.

Officials are currently in negotiations with the radical left-wing rebels.

Diaz returned to Colombia ahead of Liverpool's 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Sunday and missed Wednesday's Carabao Cup victory at Bournemouth, but will be in contention to feature for the club in Sunday's game at Luton if he feels ready, Klopp revealed.

"We just wait to see where we can pick the boy up from and go from there," said Klopp. "It's all about him, that he makes himself available or not, and I don't want to force anything.

"If he feels right, he will be with us. You can see he didn't sleep a lot. The news from Colombia gives us a little bit of hope.

"I cannot say what we will do. It's up to him, if he makes himself available or not."

Klopp confirmed the 26-year-old had been back in first-team training since Wednesday, and insinuated the Colombia forward would travel with the squad to Kenilworth Road.

"We will not force the Luis situation. It's out of our hands, we are just waiting for good news," he added at his press conference on Friday.

"He was in training two days ago, yesterday he did a session, and he will be part of the team.

"If he feels right, he will train with us. When he's with the boys he's fine but you can tell he hasn't slept a lot. We will wait to see how he is and go from there.

"The news - I didn't personally get from Colombia, I always get it forwarded - but everything that gives us a bit of hope is good. We are waiting for really good news."
