Luis Diaz has responded to his Liverpool team-mate Diogo Jota, who showed support for the Colombian when he netted against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
The parents of the Colombian forward were kidnapped on Saturday evening, with his mother now safe but authorities in the South American country still searching for his father. And Diaz wasn't part of Jurgen Klopp's side on Sunday.
Jota netted the opening goal of the game, and he immediately raced towards the sidelines to grab Diaz's shirt and hold it up. Liverpool shared the snap on social media, and Diaz responded with a love heart and raised hands emoji.
