Luis Diaz feels he is living a dream as he aims to cap an outstanding first season at Liverpool by winning the Champions League.
Diaz has been a revelation since joining the Reds from Porto in January. His arrival gave Jurgen Klopp’s attack a timely injection of energy and then helped them maintain momentum as they chased what would have been an extraordinary quadruple.
They fell just short in their quest to add the Premier League title to the two domestic cups already won, but they can make instant amends in Saturday’s Champions League final against Real Madrid.
“Always I have dreamed of winning the Champions League,” said Diaz.
“Even more so (to be playing) against a team like Real Madrid, for me I am living a great dream.
“I want to take advantage of these moments and be happy.”
The Colombian has scored two goals in six Champions League appearances for Liverpool.
