Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has come out to say that Luis Diaz can score 10 to 15 goals a season. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, the Colombian has been charged with the responsibility of stepping into the role vacated Sadio Mane, and he fully trusts him to score more goals than we expect this season.
Klopp added that Luis has definitely improved as far as understanding Liverpool’s style of play is concerned.
His words, “Oh definitely, that is his quality. We need to see but of course that is his potential.”
“We work on it but not with Luis specifically – we don’t take him out because the other two scored and he didn’t so we show him how. That’s not necessary.”
“It’s not a problem. You can’t force it. We spoke last week about people asking ‘How can you play without Sadio?’ when in November/December everybody was thinking about when he would score the next goal. You just let it go.”
“You see the situations he had (against Fulham), big chances, and he was just unlucky. He is in a really good shape and that is more important.”
“It’s not that I tell him after a game, ‘You should have scored here or there’. The boys know that in the moment. It happens. It’s a normal process.”
“The way we play should help strikers, the way we play should help the last line of defenders because everyone is involved.”
“That is also a little bit why midfielders are seen as not scoring enough, because they are involved in keeping everything together. The potential is there for sure.”
“He improved definitely with understanding what we are doing but that then leads to strange situations as well because we want to be flexible on the wings and that means he has to be slightly more inside, but then you realise it’s good for him if he stays longer on the outside.”
“We have to get used to that and that will help, but unfortunately a learning process never happens overnight.”
“He obviously has the quality and the potential. He just needs one goal and then we will go from there.”
