Jurgen Klopp admitted that he had been chasing Diogo Jota for many years.
“A team like ours is too hard to improve. He’s been on my radar for two or three years. He’s finally here,” Klopp told to BBC.
After seeing the newly-signed Portuguese star score his first Liverpool goal on Monday, Klopp said he was happy to finally secure the player: “I’m so happy with Diogo Jota. Top, top guy.”
In his short time on the pitch before scoring, the Portuguese star created a range of opportunities, with Klopp confirming that it is that skill set that has drawn him to Jota for many years.
Jota has now played his second Liverpool match, after debuting midweek in the Carabao Cup against Lincoln City.
