After a quiet summer in terms of transfer activity, Liverpool has had a very busy 48 hours. Yesterday they finally announced Thiago Alcântara. This morning they announced the transfer of Diogo Jota from Wolves. Jurgen Klopp was asked about his most recent addition.
“Oh my god, plenty of reasons!” the manager said about why he wanted to sign the forward. “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.
