Luis Diaz has all the makings of Liverpool's new icon

Although he has failed to score, Diaz caused the penalty against RB Leipzig, which Darwin Nunez scored, and has been active in pre-season.

Liverpool had a first false start (4-0 against Manchester United) and a couple of easier ones (2-0 and 5-0 against Cystal Palace and RB Leipzig), in a pre-season in which many spotlights are on newcomer Darwin Núñez, but from the inside everyone is looking at Luis Díaz.

The Colombian: his desire to work and his positive attitude continue to surprise the squad: "He never stops, he's very lively, he's very creative: he dribbles, he shoots. He's a top player and he already showed that in his first season with us," said goalkeeper Adrian.

"His English is also improving. I think he adapted very well to the team from the moment he set foot at Anfield. His first season with us was unbelievable." Yes! Improving the language is the key to his next step at Liverpool.

That good impact now leaves only one thing to think about: he needs to be better than he was in those mind-blowing first four months. "This season is going to be important because he set the level quite high, I told him before. Now he has to maintain that level or even improve it," the goalkeeper concluded.

What exactly does Klopp expect?

He made it clear: "We had two, three or four years where it was always clear before pre-season that we started up front with Sadio, Bobby and Mo. Now the door is open for almost everybody. That's really great and that's what we have to use. That will make us completely difficult to analyse before the game," added the DT.

The upcoming pre-season game against RB Salzburg and the final against Mancherster City for the Community Shield, (Liverpool) having not won it in 16 years, are perfect stages for Luis to show why he has everything to be an icon at the club.¿
