Jurgen Klopp: Luis Diaz impact nearly a miracle


Jurgen Klopp: Luis Diaz

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes the way that Luis Diaz has adapted to the Premier League is nothing short of a miracle. Diaz joined Liverpool from Porto in the January transfer window and has already managed two goals for the club which has changed the dynamic of the title race. Such has been his impact that Jamie Carragher believes Liverpool are now favorites for the title.

“Every coach would say the same about a January signing. You do it, but if you could, you would do it in the summer,” Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said about Luis Diaz. “There is a reason why you sign a player. The reason is the quality that he has. The reason is the way that he is playing the game. With Luis, where it has been really special is that when we saw him we knew that he would fit in immediately. That is really difficult usually but because he did not have to change, that is why we have a really confident boy here. He was in a really good moment with Porto, playing well for Colombia, and so he came here full of confidence. But what we tried to make sure is that he does not lose that because of the playbook as we tell him that he has to do this and he has to do that.”

“That is always completely different from player to player but with Luis, for obvious reasons, there is a language issue with me. I do not speak Spanish and he does not speak English. He is learning. I am not learning so we will have to wait until his English gets better,” he added. “Until then, we have a lot of people here who are in constant talks with him. It will take time. He is at a new club and he is thinking about what people expect. But he is obviously pretty natural here. That is why he plays the way that he plays.”
