If ever there was a footballer made for Liverpool Football Club, Luis Diaz would appear to fit perfectly within that mould, with the Colombian having adapted near-perfectly to life in Merseyside.
One neighbour, Jose Bermudez, recalled the 25-year-old having played the sport ‘with one shoe and one flip-flop’ during his time in Barranquila, with a cousin, Henry Perez, sharing a tale about the winger’s remarkable goalscoring exploits in his youth.
The former FC Porto star could be set to cap off a superb half-season with the Reds in Paris should he help Jurgen Klopp’s men lift their third piece of silverware this season and potentially a seventh title in the competition.
