Liverpool star Luiz Diaz has said that Lionel Messi and Ronaldinho are his idols, saying he is a huge fan of the Argentine king of football.
Diaz said that the first time he saw the Argentine star, during Colombia’s match against Argentina, he felt as if he was going to die.
The Liverpool man said he loves the Paris Saint-Germain star very much and was lucky to meet him again during 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 called him was in a Colombian game in Barranquilla, but I didn’t start. I had just started for the national team.”
Diaz also recalled how he faced the former Barcelona captain in a Copa America match two years ago, during which the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner signed his shirt.
