Diogo Jota explains ‘bitter’ feeling at Anfield and won’t think about future

Liverpool star Diogo Jota has explained the “bitter” feeling he has while playing at Anfield while making an admission about his future.

The Portuguese forward has made a flying start to life with the Reds since arriving from Wolves for £45m over the summer.

Scoring seven goals in his first 11 games with the Premier League champions, the 23-year-old has earned himself a place alongside Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

But Jota has admitted that his first games in red have not quite lived up to expectations.

Speaking to Portuguese outlet TVI, the forward said: “When I first signed at Anfield, I was asked what my feeling was and I said for it to be perfect, I had to play in a full stadium to have that even more special feeling.

“It feels bitter not being able to feel the atmosphere of Anfield.”

The Portuguese forward also took the chance to speak about how the goalscorer sees his Liverpool career panning out.

Jota continued: “I try not to think about a long future. I came here to do my best, I didn't aim for anything in particular and when that is the case, there are no disappointments or surprises.

“I’m in one of the best teams in the world, if not the best, so I have to take advantage of that. And looking ahead, if I am focused, I know that I will have many opportunities.

“Liverpool have great players and I came here to be one more and help to win titles – especially because I don't have as many as they do!”

The forward went on to praise manager Jurgen Klopp for his style of management with the squad.

“He is a different trainer than any I have ever had, especially in terms of contact,” Jota added.
