Luis Diaz is one of the most beloved sports figures in Colombia, acclaimed for being a national team player, currently at Liverpool competing in the Premier League, one of the most important tournaments in the world.

Diaz has indigenous roots. Lucho, as he is also known in Colombia, is under 30 years old and is a "guy who is aiming for the top, but who has had to overcome incredible obstacles to even become a professional footballer". The striker grew up on a small ranch in coastal La Guajira with his family of Wayuu indigenous roots, very close to the Cerrejón coal mine, where money is constantly scarce.

According to Colombian media, Diaz did not spend his first salary on parties and celebrations, but invested it in something he enjoys and which will also generate an income in the future. "One of the things I like the most is gold, so I went and bought some bracelets and chains", commenting that he didn't throw a party and that he preferred to acquire these materials because over time they have much more value. "That cost me about a million pesos," he explained.

Current salary

Since Radamel Falcao at Atletico Madrid and James Rodriguez at Real Madrid, Colombia had not had a footballing reference that Europe had fallen in love with.

The Mirror of England, published that Diaz's contract is for five years and his salary per week is around 400 million Colombian pesos, making the respective exchange rate conversion.
