Liverpool attacker, Diogo Jota admits the opportunity to work with Jurgen Klopp was a key influence on the decision to move to Liverpool from Wolves last summer.
The Portugal forward detailed how he was surprised by the contact because Klopp maintains great communication and in turn is close with his players.
He told FourFourTwo: “He’s exactly the manager that he appears to be – very communicative, and he enjoys being close to the players.
“He will send you a text out of nowhere when you’re relaxing on the sofa at home. It’s the sort of thing that had never happened to me, and that surprised me in the most positive way. It’s just one of his great assets.
“Before signing the papers, I had a video call with him. I don’t think he was expecting to convince me, because I was already convinced.
“He’s a coach who I admire and had been following for a long time, so this was a unique opportunity in my career and I couldn’t afford to lose it. We usually say that we don’t have to think twice. In this case, I didn’t think once – it was a no-brainer.
“I was very well received by everyone at the club, which certainly helped me. I’m close to the Brazilians, especially Fabinho because of the language, but I also have a good relationship with Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson.
” Liverpool play offensive football, which gives me more chances to score. It’s up to me to take advantage of that.”
