Konstantinos Tsimikas told The Athletic that he was devastated to learn of Liverpool star Luis Diaz’s latest injury setback
According to Goal.com, the 25-year-old was back in training after recovering from a knee injury and could have played against Lyon last Sunday.
Diaz, on the other hand, suffered a severe setback in training and is now expected to be out until March, which Jurgen Klopp described as a “big bash in the face.”
Tsimikas has now spoken out ahead of Liverpool’s Carabao Cup match against Manchester City tomorrow night, and he has stated that learning about Diaz devastated him.

“It’s really bad luck for Luis, and I’m very sorry,” Tsimikas said to the Athletic.
“Fortunately, he possesses both mental and physical strength. I wish him a speedy recovery and assure him that each of us will be there for him every step of the way. “We’ll be prepared for him.”
Diaz’s injury is a difficult pill for Klopp to swallow, especially since Diogo Jota is still recovering from his own injury.
The winger has been a standout for Liverpool since joining from Porto in January for a fee of £37 million, and the Reds have missed him greatly since Sadio Mane’s departure.
During their tour of Dubai, the Reds gained valuable playing time, losing 3-1 to Lyon before defeating AC Milan 4-1 a few days later.
Klopp’s team will be put to the test in their first competitive game in nearly a month tomorrow night.
