Jurgen Klopp Luis Diaz

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp revealed that he is relishing the opportunity of working with new signing Luis Diaz. He completed a move from Porto for a deal that is worth £37m while signing a five-and-a-half-year contract. The forward is on international duty at the moment and is set to join the training camp next week.

“We signed him because we like pretty much everything about him, that is how it is,” Jurgen Klopp said about Luis Diaz. “I have followed him now for a while, not only since we played them [Porto] twice in the Champions League. He is an exceptional player; he has the speed, the skillset, the character to have a really good career. We all want him to have this career with us.”

“Nowadays you have 16, 17-year-old boys playing at the highest level, maybe he is a bit of a late bloomer [Diaz is 25], but the bloom is exceptional,” he added. “I am really happy that we could get him in now and we can help him, and he can help us. His story is a special one, I like players with special stories behind them. Now he is one of us and we can’t wait to welcome him here and started working together.”

“If Luis were to come here, step on the pitch and be immediately at his absolute best and playing better than all the other players would be really strange because we’ve played together for a while.” Klopp continued. “He needs time. I haven’t even seen him yet, he’s not here at the training ground, so maybe we should wait a little bit.”
