Luis Diaz has been enjoying time in his native Colombia during the post-season and that has included trips down memory lane, the latest taking him to the first club he represented, Barranquilla.

Diaz’s journey to the top is an incredible one, his story started in Colombia’s La Guajira region and now sees him light up Anfield for Liverpool.

“Yesterday he arrived and went to see a Barranquilla FC game, took photos with everyone, went down to the field, greeted the players one by one, talked with everyone and was one of the last to leave the field.

Barranquilla’s technical assistant, Cesar Poveda, spoke glowingly of Diaz’s visit and the humility he continues to display and has been at the heart of his success.

At the age of 17, Diaz was not a member of a professional club but following his success in a trial for the Copa America of Indigenous People, Barranquilla FC was to be his new home.

The club was an affiliate of Atletico Junior, who he would later join, but it was Barranquilla who gave him his start and immediately put him on a dietary plan to gain 10 kilograms.

But while he enjoys his summer break, he’s been making stops to all the places that have landed him where he is today, first with Atletico Junior and now at Barranquilla.
