Luis Díaz shone in his first month with Liverpool and hopes to continue along the same lines. The Colombian attacker seeks to have minutes, this Tuesday, in the second leg between his team and Inter Milan, for the round of 16 of the Uefa Champions League.
The memory of his debut in the biggest club tournament in Europe, in the first leg in which the ‘reds’ defeated the Italians, sustains the hopes of the guajiro.
Waiting to know if he will start or start on the bench, Paul Merson, former player of the English Arsenal, warned the Colombian attacker of the responsibility that comes with being one of the figures of Liverpool.
‘It’s a different game now’
“When teams discuss how to take on Liverpool and who to stop, they don’t just talk about Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Diogo Jota, but also Luis Diaz. So now it’s a different game for him and this is when we’re going to see what he’s made of.Merson said in dialogue with the British tabloid ‘Daily Star’.
“Luis Diaz has had such an outstanding performance at Liverpool that he is already a man ‘marked’ by rivals. He came in and caught everyone on debut. The defenders had not seen much of him, nor did they know about him and he took them by surprise. Now, all of a sudden, he’s on the radar and that’s when he has to produce. Now he’s in the conversations of all rivals,” added the former English player.
Then, aware of the importance of Díaz in the ‘red’ club, Merson concluded: “What I have seen so far has impressed me a lot. His first touch, his movement, his team play, his work ethic, his finishing, his skills… Everything about him has been exceptional“.
