Luis Diaz: How, Liverpool’s Colombian, star made himself, a fixture in the starting XI..!
When Luis Diaz walked, around Wembley, balancing the FA Cup trophy lid on his head and with the man of the, match award in his hand, he looked, entirely comfortable, like a player who had been at, the club for years.
The reality is that he has won two, trophies in four months since making the, switch from Porto – and he could have a third by, the end of the week.
The Colombia international, who was playing, in the second tier back, home just six years ago, could hardly have dreamt of a better start to, his Liverpool career following a £37.5m, move in January.
His arrival has elevated Liverpool, to another level and, despite the Reds, missing out on the Premier League title by one point on the final day, of the season, he promises to play a crucial role in their, pursuit of a seventh Champions League, trophy in Paris on Saturday.
Comparisons with Figo & malnutrition, concerns
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp described Diaz, as a player who “fits like a glove, to our football” after they celebrated their, memorable FA Cup victory over Chelsea.
It is what has stood out, since Diaz’s arrival – he plays in Liverpool’s prolific, front three as if he had grown up alongside them.
“What a boy. What a story. What a, player. He gets our football 100%. I feel, lucky,” said Klopp. “He fits like a glove to our football and that, is really, really special.”
