Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has revealed that Diogo Jota was surprised with how many chances his new teammates were creating for him after he completed his transfer from Wolves. The 23-year-old made a £41m move to Anfield in September and has scored six goals in his last four games, including a hat-trick in Tuesday’s 5-0 thrashing of Atalanta in the Champions League.
In an interview with Esporte Interativo, Alisson was asked how the Portuguese forward had settled in, and was positive in his impressions of the player so far
“Very well,” he replied. “As soon as he arrived, after the first game we talked a little. He said ‘Wow, there is a lot of chances here in games, right?’ I said ‘Yeah, the team works very well offensively, it creates chances’.
“I told him ‘take the opportunity’. And he is a very hard-working, high-quality guy, down to earth, humble. He arrived to help us a lot and proves that our team is not a one-player team. We are a team with a squad, a very strong group.”
