The big mistake made by Jurgen Klopp but is unknown to him

Manager Jurgen Klopp has been full of praise of his new signing Diogo Jota as he is happy to have made the decision to bring him to the Liverpool team but he has been told that he made a big transfer blunder by securing the service of the Portugal international.

The Merseyside outfit signed Diogo Jota from Wolverhampton Wanders for an initial fee of £41 million and he has already hit the ground running, especially scoring the winner for Liverpool in their Premier League clash against Sheffield United at the weekend.

Tony Cascarino is of the opinion that the former Borussia Dortmund boss made a huge mistake to have gone ahead with the signing of Diogo Jota ahead of Wilfried Zaha who is also available in the summer market.

He stated that would have been a better fit for the Reds team because his pattern of play fits their style, recalling how the Crystal Palace forward gave Trent Alexander-Arnold a run for his money in one of their meetings.

Tony Cascarino will not put all blame on Liverpool boss as he noted that Wilfried Zaha might have been priced out of the market by Crystal palace and that might be the reason for the decision to move for other options.

The signing of the 23-year-old is a surprise to many and Tony Cascarino is one of the but manager Jurgen Klopp has been credited for making some unusual signings and making the best use of them to get the results he has recorded since he joined the club.

However, Tony Cascarino claims he has never questioned the quality of Wilfried Zaha as a tremendous player and he is surprised he has not been given the opportunity to play again in any of the big teams.

Meanwhile, it will not be a surprise to see Diogo Jota in Jurgen Klopp’s starting eleven against Midtjylland later in the week.
