Jurgen Klopp Diogo Jota

Jurgen Klopp hailed the performance of Diogo Jota after he scored a brace in the Carabao Cup final against Arsenal. He proved his worth in the absence of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane who is away at the AFCON. He has now scored 14 goals this season from just 22 starts. He has proven the worth of his £41m price tag two years ago.

“We were completely convinced when he arrived he’d help us massively,” Jurgen Klopp said about Diogo Jota. “There are so many things before you sign a player, nowadays you can watch 100 games, we were really confident but since he’s been here he’s made another step. He’s turned into a world-class striker, and that’s really helpful for us. We scored two wonderful goals, Jota was on fire, but the passes too. I don’t think a lot of people in the stadium saw Diogo in that position for the second goal, but Trent did which was helpful and he finished it off – absolutely outstanding.”

“We’re over the moon. It’s a difficult game, a difficult time generally, we just have to get through it. We try everything we can, and what the boys did tonight against a really strong Arsenal side was really exceptional,” he added. “Arsenal were pretty lively at the start of both halves, we calmed it down, played good football, didn’t create a lot but with their quality, it’s not easy. Since then he made incredible steps and now he’s a top-class goalie. Calm like you cannot believe, good with the ball, and, on top of that, he makes incredible saves.”
