THE BALL – Only 10 have more minutes than Luis Díaz (FC Porto)

He left for Liverpool and left a trace of nostalgia among FC Porto supporters. Sérgio Conceição has also suffered from the loss of the team’s star, especially at such a critical phase of the season, with the blues and whites involved in several competitive fronts.

The deal could reach 60 million, depending on the sporting goals Díaz achieves, but that’s not what we’re talking about here.

And nobody will take it from there, because Fábio Vieira is behind, with 1304′. Missing a match, the calculation is not difficult to do. The most extraordinary thing is that Díaz is also the 11th passenger in Porto’s global player campaign, that is, from the sum of all competitions – 2278 minutes. As in the League, behind is Fábio Vieira, also without any mathematical chance of catching the now Liverpool footballer. Díaz bid farewell to FC Porto with 18 games and 17 goals scored. He is the third top scorer for the blues and whites in all competitions, second only to Taremi, with 24, and Evanilson, who takes 21. The Colombian no longer takes the last place on the podium in terms of finishing either.
