Wolves boss happy to see Diogo Jota ‘doing amazing’ with Liverpool

Jota joins Liverpool

Diogo Jota left Wolves over the summer for Premier League champions, Liverpool.

The Reds are understood to have paid around £41m to land the forward, with that fee potentially rising to £45m with add-ons.

At the time, there were a few eyebrows raised about Liverpool paying out such a high sum for what many presumed would be a bit-part addition.

However, the early stages of the campaign at least have seen Jota certainly go some way towards justifying his transfer fee.

Nuno Santo happy for Jota

Despite starting just twice in the league, Jota has already netted three in five outings, with two of those goals playing a key role in Jurgen Klopp’s men picking up three points.

The Portuguese has also netted four in three Champions League outings, including a hat-trick vs Atalanta in midweek.

And after his impressive start to life on Merseyside, Jota has also been receiving a fair bit of praise from his former boss, Nuno Santo:

“We are very happy for Diogo.

“He is enjoying his football, enjoying his momentum, he is doing amazing for Liverpool. I think Klopp is really happy with him.

“For us, we worked together for four seasons and when a player goes and succeeds it makes us happy.

“In the case of Diogo it’s not a surprise. Diogo loves the game, he is committed, he lives for football, he plays and watches all the games.

“I am really happy for Diogo and I hope he continues and enjoys it game by game. It’s a joy to see him smile.”
