“He’s a great player” – Watch Luis Diaz names one Liverpool superstar he has an incredible ‘special connection’ with
Liverpool winger Luis Diaz feels honoured to be sharing the dressing room with fellow attacker Mohamed Salah.
Following the departure of Sadio Mane, Luis Diaz and Salah have grown into key players in Liverpool’s assault. The former only recently moved to Anfield during the January transfer window.
Salah plays on the right, and he plays on the left side of the attack. Darwin Nunez or Roberto Firmino will partner with the pair to form an attacking trio.
Diaz has praised Salah and claimed that the Egyptian has helped him improve both on and off the field.
The former Porto player claimed that he gets along well with Salah and the rest of the team. The Colombian said in a statement to Sky Sports:
“It’s stupendous for me, being able to share my position in the team with Mo.
“I’ve seen him over many years on television at so many tournaments, and I’d like to say I’m proud of myself, having reached this position where I can share with him these experiences, to wear the same shirt and be a teammate of his. It’s really something special.”
“Every day, playing alongside players like him, it helps you to improve, not just in a footballing sense as a player but also as a person.
“He’s a great guy, and there’s a very special connection between him and me, and between all of us, in fact.”
