Former Liverpool striker, Michael Owen has revealed that James Milner told him that he knew within seconds that Luis Diaz was the perfect fit for the Reds after watching his first training session with the club.
Diaz has been a revelation since joining Liverpool from Porto in January.
The Colombian international has scored four goals so far and has fitted into Liverpool’s front three with ease.
“I was talking to James Milner about the new lad Diaz and he said within seconds he was just up to speed,” Owen said on BT Sport.
“He watched, he looked around, as soon as he went down in training, he was up and closing down.
“He said he was just a Liverpool player straight away, from the first training session.
“I think that is what coming into a really good environment brings,” he stated.
Meanwhile, Diaz featured as Liverpool defeated Villarreal 2-0 in the Champions League semi-final first-leg tie on Wednesday night at Anfield.
