Luis Díaz, for the first time since he arrived in England, is receiving criticism for his sports performance.
Luis Díaz, compared to two historic players in world football, what do you think? Luis Díaz maintains the endorsement of an English football legend: 'he Has magic'
Although he did not have any performances that would earn him serious questions, the fact that he did not have any great plays in Liverpool's debut in the Premier League has seemed to be enough for some commentators to question his level.
In the midst of that situation, Jürgen Klopp, the team's coach, and who has repeatedly shown his weakness for Díaz, decided to speak out.
In his opinion, “he was a bit unlucky” in his first match.

Klopp, in defense of 'Lucho'
“I think Luis narrowly missed the goal. Against Fulham he had very good moments, very good situations. He had two chances, one went to the post, I think, or to the crossbar, and then he was blocked in another situation”, expressed the German helmsman in the first instance.
“He lacked a bit of luck, then he will score and that would also help him tremendously. But apart from that, the attack was not our problem last weekend”, the DT added.

Liverpool plays this Monday at 2 p.m. m., against Crystal Palace, for the second round of the Premier League.
The team's withdrawal
At the press conference in which he referred to Díaz, Klopp said he hopes Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcántara will only be injured for four weeks, while he did not rule out seeking reinforcements for the spinal cord in the market.
In the press conference prior to the light weekend, the German coach said that Thiago “is fine”, although he did not downplay the inconvenience that forced him to leave the match played against Fulham last Saturday.
The Spanish player was replaced by Harvey Elliott shortly after the start of the second half at Craven Cottage, after detecting hamstring problems, “a bad injury,” Kloop acknowledged today.
“I understand that he will be (off) between four and six weeks, I hope it will be four” , stressed the coach, who could lose the midfielder until the end of September.
In that case, Thiago would also be a doubt to enter the call for the Spanish team led by Luis Enrique, who will play two games in group A2 of the League of Nations at the end of next month.
