The scorer and revelation of the Copa América Brasil 2021, Luis Fernando Díaz, spoke with the Cartagena instagramer Juan Camilo Bustos. ‘Juancho’, as he is known in the networks, took a confession from him at the end of Porto. ‘Lucho’ denied having suffered from malnutrition, told how he started his relationship with Geraldine Ponce and talked about how his retirement dreams, will it be with Junior?
The first thing Luis Díaz said in the entertaining talk was that he did not suffer from malnutrition problems, beyond that he has always been the ‘skinny’ of the family. “I always ate well and had to eat. My family knew how to get by.”
Díaz comes from being the scorer of the Copa América after scoring 4 goals, the same for Argentine Lionel Messi. In addition, he was recognized as the revelation of the tournament in Brazil. On his retirement he did not hesitate to say that he sees him as a shark. “I would like to retire in Junior and with the 10.” He also replied to ‘Juancho’ about the possibility of using that same number in the Colombian National Team: “It could be, I like the number but I like others more, such as 7, 8, 11”.
Luis has shared his life with Geraldine Ponce for five years and they will be parents, so he put ‘spicy’ on the details of his love story: “We met at a Barranquilla FC game, when I was making my debut. When she saw me, she stayed Melted. Right there we became boyfriends. I asked her to be boyfriends outside the stadium and she did not resist, “he said with laughter.
Finally, Díaz told what was the first thing that he bought with his first salary as a professional: “one of the things that I like the most is gold garments. I bought a bracelet and a chain, it went away like a million pesos”, in addition to the gift that was given when he made the leap to Europe: “I bought the rolex that I have now.”
