The Portuguese Jota is the goal machine with Liverpool this season
Portuguese star Diego Jota presents very special levels in the squad of German coach Jurgen Klopp, coach of the Liverpool team, as he is the most suitable alternative to the Egyptian pharaoh Mohamed Salah to occupy the center of the attacking right wing.
Jota turned into a goal machine with Liverpool this season after joining the Reds last season from Wolverhampton, but he missed long periods of the 2020-2021 season due to injury.
Jota scored 21 goals and provided 8 assists in 52 games in all competitions with Liverpool this season, compared to scoring 13 goals and providing one assist with the Reds in 30 meetings during 2020-2021.
