Liverpool star Jota hailed by pundit as private payment comes to light

Diogo Jota deserves credit for spending his own money to ensure he doesn’t get injured when Liverpool need him most.

That’s the view of medical expert Ben Dinnery, who leads the Premier Injuries site and has experience in injury and data analysis.

Jota, 26, missed the first few weeks of 2022-23 with a hamstring injury carried over from Portugal’s Nations League matches in June.

The Daily mail reported last Sunday (October 2) that the striker is planning to build two new gymnasiums at his £2m home.

Dinnery hailed Jota for “doing everything in his power” to achieve maximum physical output and help Liverpool turn their season around.

“We have to understand the profile of the player and the role he plays,” he said Football Insiders Adam Williams.

“Internally, there will be discussions about how Klopp wants to deploy Jota. We know there have been several hamstring issues lately.

“He’s had hardly any pre-season and is still feeling the side effects. This is an opportunity to work with his own physiotherapists and therapists and minimize the risk of further setbacks.

“Being proactive in this kind of situation is always the preferred method. It’s a good reflection of the player trying to do everything in his power to stay fit.

“After what has been a very poor start for Liverpool, the pressure is starting to mount on both the manager and the players.”

In other news, pundits can’t believe Jurgen Klopp could be sacked amid Liverpool’s ‘lethargic and complacent’ digs.
