This Friday, the French magazine France Football announced that among the nominees for the 2021-2022 Ballon d’Or is the Colombian Luis Díaz, a Liverpool player, who during the season celebrated two titles: Carabao Cup and FA Cup.

‘Lucho’ started his 2022-2023 season on the right foot, after being crowned champion of the Community Shield and rubbing shoulders with great world figures.

Along with the winger of the Colombian National Team, great international players such as Robert Lewandoski, Thibaut Courtois, Sadio Mane, Kylian Mbappé, Erling Haaland, Mohamed Salah, Vinicius Jr and Karim Benzema are also nominated.

Before arriving in England, Díaz had outstanding performances with Porto. With this club he achieved 14 goals and 5 assists in the Portuguese League, which contributed to the fact that months after his departure this team won the local title.

Meanwhile, with the Liverpool shirt, he won the 2021-2022 FA Cup title and the 2021-2022 League Cup, both with wins against Chelsea. Likewise, he won the Community Shield 2022-2023 against Manchester City.

Lucho’s contribution was evident in each of the competitions he participated in with the Reds, although it was not always reflected in goals. In the Premier League he had 4 goals and three assists, while in the Champions League he had a total of 4 goals and one assist.

The level he showed with the Colombian National Team in the Copa América, a competition in which he scored four times, also had an impact on his nomination for the Ballon d’Or.

Colombian soccer fans are waiting for a favorable result for their compatriot.
