Fede Valverde's wife showed just how committed the Real Madrid midfielder is as he played through the pain barrier to help reach the last four of the Champions League.
The Uruguayan midfielder was part of a strong defensive effort at Anfield as Zinedine Zidane's side stood firm to book a semi-final match-up with Chelsea.
Valverde's wife Mina Bonino took to social media to praise her other half and give fans an insight into how banged up he was going over to England.
In a screenshot of a FaceTime call between them, an image showed Valverde's foot badly bruised in the hours before the quarter-final second leg.
'This was this afternoon,' Bonino wrote alongside the image.
'I didn't want to post anything until the game was over and I'm sure you're not going to be happy with me for publishing it, but I must do it all the same because it's your effort and nobody gifted you anything.
'Day by day to work harder, and today you've achieved more than ever. You're our pride.'
