Many Liverpool fans are reacting to the latest injury update around summer signing Diogo Jota, and when he could possibly return.
Two tweets have reported on his possible return, one was tweeted out by a writer of the Guardian, and the other from a writer of the Telegraph. They both report that Jota will resume full training with the club this week, ahead of the trip to Sheffield United, after spending two months on the sidelines with a knee injury.
The 24-year-old Portuguese international had a great start to his life at the Reds, scoring five goals in nine Premier League games, in which he managed 2.2 shots per game, whilst he also scored four goals in six Champions League appearances (WhoScored). It is easy to see why one fan called the injury update ‘great news’.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are on an awful run currently in England’s top flight, losing their last four games, and only scoring twice (footballwebpages). One of these losses was against Manchester City whilst the most recent one was the loss to Merseyside rivals Everton at Anfield, something which had not happened since 1999. Therefore, this latest news will come as a huge boost for everyone at the club and hopefully he will be returning soon.
Here is how Liverpool fans reacted to the news:
“Like a new signing. Hopefully, Klopp doesn’t play him against Red Bull if we’re 6-0 up”
“A player who can run, shoot AND dribble!? Oh how I’ve missed Diogo”
“Felt a lot longer than 2 months”
“I know this is wishful thinking, but… maybe, just maybe, we are missing the finishing touch of Diogo Jota.”
“Some positivity at last. No way Klopp throws him in against Sheff Utd though.”
“Finally. He’s been missed.”
“Yes, please. It’s about time”
