Luis Diaz has quickly become a popular member of the Liverpool squad following his move from his FC Porto, with the Colombian striking up friendships with Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott.
Speaking on his latest signing, Jurgen Klopp joked that the 25-year-old has ‘no idea how they talk’, in light of the player’s ongoing efforts to learn English, as was relayed on Twitter by Ian Doyle.
Klopp: Thank God we made that decision as he helped everywhere. He communicates to everybody without really speaking the language. He's really close with Curtis and Harvey and have no idea how they talk!
