Liverpool star Diogo Jota was pleased to have a thirst of what it feels like playing in front of a full Anfield stadium during a friendly tie with Athletic Club.

The game ended in a 1-1 draw on Sunday against the Spanish outfit.

Jota netted Liverpool’s only goal of the game in front of 40,000 fans – their biggest attendance since March 2020.

Speaking post-game, Jota told Liverpoolfc.com: “Finally! It felt really good.

“When I first came into the tunnel I felt already the crowd. It’s massive for us, they have a really important role to play in this club in this season and I just hope this can continue like this.”

He continued: “We scored already in the last friendly some goals after recovering the ball so it’s something that is part of us – pressing, getting the ball, play forward – and fortunately for us we could score another goal.

“The result wasn’t what we wanted, but in the end it’s a friendly and we are getting ready for the season.”
