Leeds United defender Diego Llorente has dedicated his first goal to the memory of his grandfather, who sadly passed away earlier this year.

The Spanish defender headed home Jack Harrison's 87th minute corner against Liverpool to earn Leeds a point against the Premier League champions on a highly-charged night at Elland Road.

“The goal was very important for one person who left me two months ago, my grandpa," Llorente told LUTV following the match.

"The goal was for my grandpa.

“I didn't see the ball, Pascal [Struijk] said he almost got it! Finally I got a touch on the ball and it was a goal."
