Diogo Jota: estreia nos Reds
O avançado português de 23 anos mudou-se do Wolves para o Liverpool num negócio que pode chegar aos 45M£. O técnico Jurgen Klopp deixou rasgados elogios a Diogo Jota no dia da sua apresentação.
Can you tell us why Diogo was someone you wanted to bring to Liverpool?
Oh my god, plenty of reasons! He’s a player who gives us so many options to use him. He’s 23 years old, still far away from being kind of a finished article, so much potential. He has the speed, he can combine, can defend, can press. It makes it just more unpredictable and gives us real options for different systems because he can play pretty much all three positions up front in a 4-3-3, if we play with four midfielders he can play both wings. So, these kinds of things. It’s just nice. And he has some natural things which we have in our game, like this desire and the greed and the direction. He is part of this unbelievable Portuguese generation in the moment, where they have really a lot of obviously quite skilled players. We saw the Portuguese team last time, it’s quite impressive. So, I’m really happy to have him here. And on top of that, a really good guy and really happy to be here.
Esta terça-feira ficou marcada pela sua estreia com a camisola dos Reds, na vitória por 7-2 em casa do Lincoln para a Carabao Cup. 33 minutos em campo e deixou bons apontamentos daquilo que pode ser o seu futuro como alternativa válida ao trio da frente, Salah, Mané e Firmino.
