Luis Diaz makes his Liverpool debut

Liverpool had to spend 55 million euros to get the services of Luis Diaz from FC Porto. Usually mid-season signings take time to get used to the new environment and style of play. However, Diaz did not need that. He showed an amazing ability to integrate, as if he had worn the Red Brigade shirt for a long time.

At Anfield, the Colombia international still promotes the strengths that he once showed in the Porto shirt, that is speed, technique, actively pressing in the front line… Diaz’s impressive performance made Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota has been pushed to the bench in recent times.

 Diaz is shining at Liverpool.

In the latest interview with Sky Sports, coach Jurgen Klopp said: “With Luis Diaz, what is really special is that when we see him, we know he will adapt immediately.

It’s been really hard but since he doesn’t need to change that’s why we have a really confident guy here.

Diaz has been in a really good time with Porto, plays well for Colombia, and so he comes here full of confidence. But what we’re trying to do is make sure he doesn’t lose that because the documentation we have says Diaz has to do this and he has to do it.”
