Luis Díaz will have a new test this Wednesday with Liverpool in the English Premier League, when he faces Leeds (2:45 pm), a team that is led by the Argentine Marcelo Bielsa, former coach of his country, Lazio, Lille, among others. The match corresponds to date 19 and was pending in the programming.
Díaz, who was already a starter on the previous date against Norwich, when he scored his first goal with the Reds shirt, hopes to have the opportunity to be on the pitch again today, since the Portuguese striker Diogo Jota and the Brazilian Firmino did not They have recovered from their respective injuries.
If so, Díaz will face a special rival, because it is Bielsa, a very strategic coach who takes care of every tactical detail, despite the fact that his team is in 15th place, with 23 points.
Bielsa does not have a comfortable moment, and his team receives many goals, to which the DT referred. “We are the second team that has received the most goals (50) and I have to be held accountable, because I am responsible for that shortcoming,” he said, adding about his rival, “he is one of the greats in the league.”
Surely Bielsa will pay attention to Diaz’s movements, and will give him problems to hinder him in his game. So for Lucho it will be an interesting challenge.
The Colombian has had a special week, since he does not stop talking about him after his good performance on Sunday, and because of what he has shown on his arrival at Liverpool, where he has only played four games.
This Tuesday, Díaz received new praise, this time from his partner Trent Alexander Arnold. “He is hungry for victory, to be successful and to help the team. He does everything that can be asked of someone coming into a group: come in, adapt and then learn the way we play.”
