Luis Diaz has enjoyed a great start to his life at Liverpool since joining from FC Porto in 2022. The Colombian winger took little time to settle in his new surroundings and hit the ground running instantly. Capable of turning the game on its head, Diaz has quick pace and good ball control. He’s very good in his decision-making process too. Besides, the Colombian is praised for his tremendous work rate, an aspect which has earned him a great deal of respect from the supporters.

Diaz has been a key part of Liverpool’s brilliant run this season. There was a time when the Reds were fighting for a historic quadruple. However, they ended up winning only one of them in the form of the Carabao Cup. Despite the team’s poor run of late, Diaz has stood out and has been one of the players to watch out. Speaking about his development, he told Liverpoolfc.com, “I have grown a lot.”

He added: “From the beginning of my career to today, I feel that with the passage of days, of years, living each experience in each different team, coming to this great club that is Liverpool, leaves you with a lot of learnings. You learn more and more to be a professional, to be a better person, to be a good teammate and a good guy. The truth is that I am very happy to be here. Great years are coming for the club, I have no doubt about that. Personally, I will always try to do my best, always try to give 100 per cent, to always stand out on the field, which is what I came [here] to do. I’m always grateful to God for every opportunity.”

Diaz’s impressive performances have earned him a fan song, with the supporters frequently chanting it in recent past. “It’s something beautiful and special because every time we go out to give it our all. To uphold the institution, the club. To do what I came to do from the first moment I arrived,” he elaborated.

The winger added: “I always wanted to perform well. I always wanted to be one of the best, trying to respect everyone. Seeing the fans sing that song, that beautiful song, leaves you something very nice marked for you, to take as a memory. I’m very happy. I thank them very much for what they are doing. I always go out happy to the field because I know I have their full support.”

Diaz also gave an honest assessment of their season and is eager to improve on these results. “It’s no secret, we didn’t finish as well as we hoped. For us, it was crucial to win the league and all the competitions we were in. Unfortunately, the results lately could not be achieved. We fell [behind] as a team, but we made a decent season, both individually and as a group. There are many things to improve so we can have a perfect season. But I’m happy and content to be here,” he explained.
