Liverpool winger Luis Diaz has been hailed as the ‘real deal’ by former Scotland star Ally McCoist.

The 25-year-old has been an instant success on Merseyside following an initial £37.5million switch from FC Porto in January (Sky Sports).

Already showing signs of becoming a regular in Jurgen Klopp’s strongest side, the Colombian was a star performer as the Reds’ lifted the Carabao Cup at Wembley.

Speaking on talkSPORT Breakfast (28 February 2022), McCoist was full of praise for the ace.

Diaz by the way, he looks the real deal. He had about a 25 minute period in the first half when he just lit the place up. It was brilliant.

Since arriving at Anfield, Diaz has earned an impressive 7.43 average Sofascore rating from three Premier League outings.


Spot on.

Diaz has been superb in a red shirt so far and some of the defto touches, skills and direct running during the final were sensational.

Always a threat and seemingly unnerved by the big occasion, the £36million valued Colombian looks primed to make a huge impact this season as Liverpool go in search of more trophies.
