Diogo Jota makes honest admission about Liverpool boss decision during Arsenal game
Liverpool FC sensational forward Diogo Jota has disclosed to Alan Shearer how he was unhappy after being substituted by Jurgen Klopp during their 2-0 win over Arsenal at the Emirates stadium.
Speaking on Premier League Productions (via HITC), Alan Shearer had asked Jota about how he felt during substitution:
“You can be honest with us, what did you think when you saw your number come up from the touchline that your last touch was a goal?”
“Well, it could be worse. If I didn’t score, then it was worse. I am never happy when I have to come off, but it was a good way to finish the game at least.”
The Portuguese international Diogo Jota squeezes a shot past Ramsdale’s near the post to give The reds the lead.
Diogo Jota’s displeasure must have been palpable, with Jota finding the net before being substituted.
Liverpool, however, went on to secure the win they needed, thanks to another goal by Roberto Firmino to seal the deal.
The reds have successfully closed the gap with premier league leaders Manchester City to just a 1 point, making them return back fully into the premier league race.
Arsenal are still retaining the 4 position in the league table despite their defeat to Liverpool.
