Diaz moved to Liverpool in January of 2022 from FC Porto.
2022/23 was his first full campaign as a Red but he suffered a knee injury that saw him miss almost half of the season.
Liverpool’s form took a major dip when Diaz was out and it is no coincidence the Reds had an excellent end to last season when Diaz returned.
He has since scored two in four in the Premier League this term but is currently on international duty with Colombia.
On his pride at playing for Colombia, Diaz said: “I still feel normal going back there but obviously I’m now a more recognisable face because of what I have achieved in football. I started out in Colombia, moved to Europe and now I’m playing for Liverpool. It’s great pride that my fans and family feel.
“They let you know they support you and it feels great to be representing my country. Every supporter loves the fact I play here [in England] and I’m obviously very thankful to them. “It’s fans that make us really and I enjoy carrying that pride of representing Colombia to the world.”
On his idols, Diaz added: “A reference point for me was always Ronaldinho. I always tried to be similar to him. I loved the way he was on the ball and how much he seemed to enjoy playing football. He always played with a smile on his face, so I try to identify with him.
“More recently, the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar. Those are the three I really looked up to in my younger years.”
