Liverpool forward Luis Diaz believes that their start to the season is not problematic despite picking up only two points from their opening three games. They drew their opening games against Fulham and Crystal Palace before a devastating defeat to old foes Manchester United. Diaz joined the club from Porto for £49m in January and has soon become a fan favorite.
“It’s stupendous for me, being able to share my position in the team with Mo. I’ve seen him over many years on television at so many tournaments and I’d like to say I’m proud of myself, having reached this position where I can share with him these experiences, to wear the same shirt and be a team-mate of his. It’s really something special,” Liverpool forward Luis Diaz said about Mohammed Salah. “Every day, playing alongside players like him, it helps you to improve, not just in a footballing sense as a player but also as a person. He’s a great guy and there’s a very special connection between him and me, and between all of us, in fact.”
“It’s been a bit of a difficult start. It’s not quite the outset we wanted for the season. We’re a club that goes out to win three points from every game we play. I wouldn’t say it’s problematic for the players or for the manager but certainly, we all know we need to do better,” he added. “We were fully aware of what kind of rivalry exists between the clubs and we knew we had a big task ahead of us. It didn’t go our way on the day. We know now we have to just do our job and train hard, rest hard and look forward to the next game when we can hopefully accumulate some points and get a proper start to the season.”
