Luiz Diaz, a star player for Liverpool, has cited Lionel Messi and Ronaldinho as his role models and revealed that he is a huge fan of the Argentine football king.
Diaz recalled feeling like he was going to pass away the first time he saw the Argentine superstar, which was during Colombia’s game against Argentina.
The Liverpool player gushed about how much he adores the superstar PSG player and how fortunate he was to run into him again at the Copa America two years ago.
“The day I meet him, I am really going to die! I love Messi,” he told Anfield Watch.
“The first time I had contact with him was in a Colombian game in Barranquilla, but I didn’t start. I was just starting out in the national team.”
Diaz further recalled how he came across the former Barcelona captain in a Copa America game two years ago, where the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner signed a shirt for him.
