Luis Diaz joined Liverpool in January for half of the 2021-2022 season, but has consistently been regarded as one of the important pillars in German manager Jurgen Klopp's scheme. In an interview with ESPN, Diaz spoke about his time in England, the Colombia national team and his aspirations for this new football year.

Liverpool spent difficult hours at the beginning of the Premier League, but now they have achieved their first victory, in a masterful way with a 9-0 win over Bournemouth at Anfield, where the Colombian managed to score a double, the first to open the door for the goal in the third minute and the last of the night at 85 to close the 9 for the history of the Premier League.

On the selection of Colombia, Diaz said it was a pity that they could not be in the World Cup, but already sees himself qualifying for the next hand of the coaching staff that is, of each teammate: "We will always try to give the best of us as we have always done, try to be united to start in a good way the friendlies that we will have to get to know each other to put together a great selection," he said.

Nomination

For Diaz, it was incredible to be nominated for this year's Ballon d'Or, which will be awarded by the French football magazine France Football, a ceremony that will take place on 17 October 2022 at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris. "The reaction I had in those moments when the list came out for me, it was very satisfying to see that name on there," he said.

"I had always dreamed about it, I always wanted to be among the best. To see that I was on that list was a moment of satisfaction that I can't get over. My family also took it very well. I try to keep my feet on the ground, focused on achieving more things that I can do," added the Colombian.
