Luis Diaz told what to do to guarantee a lengthy Liverpool Success in the Premier League
Luis Diaz has been backed to enjoy a lengthy Liverpool career as long as he follows one tactical “code” of English football and one off-the-pitch piece of advice.
Diaz joined Liverpool as the only signing of the January transfer window from Porto, the Reds bolstered their ranks with more strong competition for Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, and Roberto Firmino.
Jurgen Klopp will hope that Diaz can replicate Diogo Jota’s impact after his arrival in 2020. Indeed, the ex-Wolves wide man arrived as a backup for the main front three but has regularly made his way into the starting XI since then.
Diaz started on a good note after playing a role in one of Liverpool’s goal in the victory against Cardiff City in the FA Cup fourth round.
The Columbia international will now hope to build up his form and carry on from where he left off in Portugal having netted 16 goals for Porto.
One man who thinks Diaz can succeed at Liverpool is former Colombia and Middlesbrough striker Hamilton Ricard.
“A guy who has all the conditions to succeed in Liverpool and in the English League. He’s always been quick, going to the front,” Ricard told Futbolred.
“There is a clear code, that the first pass is forward; if it is not possible, to the side; if it is not possible there either, the last option is to throw it backward. It’s a code they have there.”
Outside the pitch, Ricard then advised Diaz to focus on his football and not on social media, to ensure he fully integrates into the English game.
Ricard added: “[I hope] that Luis Diaz is going to play football, that he concentrates on growing as a player. On being more powerful, faster, just playing ball, that the rest will be given.
“That he is not going to be careless in social networks; the English do not like that. Let him focus on playing football and he’s going to have Brits eating out of his hand for life.
“The player must concentrate 100% because that is what he gives. Everything that Luis Diaz has achieved has been for the ball, changing the life of his family, it was for the ball. Not because of his followers, not because of his social media or talking”
