"Long may it continue" - Luis Diaz on settling in at Liverpool

Luis Diaz has spoken about settling in at Liverpool after the Reds signed him from FC Porto in January.

Ever since Diaz signed for the Reds at the start of the year, he has become a fan favourite.

Usually, new Liverpool signings take a while to bed into Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side but not the Colombian.

Since signing for the Reds for a reported fee of Β£40m, Diaz has played nine games for the Merseyside club.

Even though he has only scored one goal while playing under Klopp, that does not tell the whole story as Diaz has arguably been Liverpool's best player when he has been involved.

Speaking to Liverpool FC, as cited by Anfield Watch, Diaz has spoken about how well he has settled in on Merseyside.

"It's going the best way possible and it's kind of the way that we all wanted. Certainly from a personal point of view, it's just how I wanted to try to start and what I've dreamed of and how I dreamed of starting," said Diaz.

"I knew that I'd come to a very competitive club involved in everything. So, I'm really, really happy how it's started and long may it continue.

"I wanted to settle as quickly as possible and to get to know the style of play and feel comfortable. In training and on the field, I think I've managed to develop a good understanding with my teammates – and I think that's been down to both them and the coaching staff."

Anfield Watch Verdict

Even though Diaz has only played a handful of games he looks like he will be Liverpool's next superstar, following in the footsteps of Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

Every time he has played for the Reds so far this season he brings something that we haven't previously had, flair.

The Colombian is so direct and forward-thinking and in a sometimes reserved Liverpool side, that is what we needed.

Hopefully, Diaz can continue this run of form and maybe grab some goals before the season is over.
