Liverpool forward Luis Diaz was blasted by Columbian Media for his actions last night.
What a great signing Luis Diaz was for Liverpool.
When Tottenham Hotspur sought to sign the Colombian international in January, the Reds took the opportunity and were able to bring him to Anfield in a £49 million move.
He has only been a member of Liverpool for around nine months. But it appears that he has been playing for Jurgen Klopp for much longer.
This is due to the former Porto winger’s immediate effect on Merseyside. This even led Klopp to employ Sadio Mane as a number nine for the second half of the previous season due to Diaz’s unstoppable left-sided attack.
Luis Diaz clumsy errors attracted slamming from Columbian Media
On Tuesday night in California, the 25-year-old played for Colombia in a friendly victory over Mexico.
After just six minutes, Alexis Vega put Mexico ahead thanks to a Liverpool attacker’s error. Diaz gave up the clumsy penalty that led to the opening goal.
Diaz took a terrible, pointless foul. And El Tiempo was the one to call it a “huge error.”
Despite making the error, the South American went on to have a really good game overall as his nation came back from being two goals down to win 3-2.
After the game, Diaz took a flight back to Liverpool. And Klopp will want him to be as fresh as possible for Saturday’s visit from Brighton & Hove Albion to Anfield.
Columbian Media was reportedly furious with the antics of the forward and widely criticized him.
Columbia will not be part of the 2022 World Cup after finishing 6th in the COPA WCQ. The team had a great 2nd half of the qualifying campaign but the previous results didn’t let them qualify.
Luis Diaz himself scored 3 goals in the campaign but could not help his nation play its first world cup after 2014.
