Some Liverpool supporters have been reacting to the news that Diogo Jota has been working with a former sprinter ahead of the new season.
The Reds had a season to forget in 2020/21, even though they ended up securing a third-place finish in the Premier League.
The Portuguese made an immediate impression at his new club, and had it not been for a three-month injury layoff, the 24-year-old would arguably have had an even bigger influence for the Reds.
According to The Daily Mail [via Anfield Watch on Twitter], Jota has been training with former Olympic medal-winning sprinter Francis Obikwelu in order to make a flying start to the new season. The forward was already known for his superb pace, and this attribute could be even further embellished as a result of his training with Obikwelu.
