And if he is the one who completes the best possible trident in Liverpool, the one who sparks the attack, the one who sacrifices himself and the one who never gives up, why is he now a substitute?
The question arises from the substitution of Luis Díaz in the last 5-1 victory in the Europa League, which secured the top of group E. But coach Jürgen Klopp’s response is one of the most sensible and, incidentally, encouraging for the Colombian National Team.
“Until now we were able to do it like this, and since we don’t have too many injuries that’s why we can do it,” explained the German. In fact, in that match only Darwin Núñez and Alexander-Arnold, of the usual starters, were there from the beginning: it was a very mixed roster.
“This rhythm is what we have this year and we should get used to it sooner rather than later. So far everything has gone well, but a Premier League season with European football and all the cup competitions is an intense season. We never had any problem with that, everything is fine,” he added.
Precisely, this Sunday (9:00 am Colombian time) in the duel against Nottingham Forest for the Premier League, the Colombian could reappear. In the end, the DT’s job is to manage the resource, not waste it unnecessarily. Díaz is fine and improving.
