Klopp 'happy and excited' about Luis Diaz signing

Speaking to the media ahead of Liverpool's FA Cup game against Cardiff City, Klopp was clearly excited about the acquisition of the Colombian player.

"We like pretty much everything about him," Klopp said. "I followed him for a while. Not only since we played them (Porto) twice in the Champions League, so he is an exceptional player.

"He has this speed, skill set, he has the character to have a really good career and we all want him to have this career here with us.

"He is maybe a little bit of a late bloomer, but he has bloomed exceptionally well. We are really happy that we could get him in now and we can help him and he can help us."
