Jurgen Klopp Praises Diogo Jota After Liverpool Beat Arsenal

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has hailed Diogo Jota as world class after his match-winning brace sent the Reds into the Carabao Cup final.

Jota scored in each half as Klopp’s men won 2-0 in their semi-final second leg.

The Portuguese forward now has 14 goals in 22 starts in all competitions for Liverpool this season.

His form has led to Klopp praising the talents of a player whose £41m price tag drew criticism when he first joined the club less than two years ago.

“We were completely convinced when he arrived that he’d help us massively.

“There are so many things before you sign a player, nowadays you can watch 100 games, we were really confident but since he’s been here he has made another step. He’s turned into a world-class striker, and that’s really helpful for us.

“We scored two wonderful goals, Jota was on fire, but the passes too. I don’t think a lot of people in the stadium saw Diogo in that position for the second goal, but Trent did which was helpful and he finished it off – absolutely outstanding,” Klopp told Sky Sports.

Liverpool will now take on Chelsea for the trophy next month.
