Everything is bad at Liverpool Football Club at the moment. They’re well adrift in the league and have lost 5 straight home games. One silver lining in the storm of awful is that winger Diogo Jota is back with the team and injury free. For a team that can’t score a goal to save their lives that has to be good news.

Jota talked with the official team site about being back and his goals for the rest of the season.

“Obviously when you are out for so long it’s not easy to get back on track 100 per cent straight away.” He said. “But it was good, I played around 35 minutes and felt good. So I just need to keep training hard and with game time I think I’ll be at my best again very soon.”

Jota was asked by the interviewer what he wanted to bring to the rest of the season.

“Just a new boost in terms of confidence and, let’s say like this, freshness because obviously they’ve been playing and fighting for the club. I feel like I could be like a winter transfer. So that’s what I hope so they can rely on me and think I can help them in the future.”
