The smart decision made by Klopp that is saving the season


The transfer decisions made by manager Jurgen Klopp are highly responsible for the success enjoyed by Liverpool so far this season even though it did not look like it from the start.

The Reds team enjoyed another win against West Ham United on Saturday with new signing Diogo Jota was also on target in the game as he scored the winner after coming from the bench.

The Reds boss has been full of praise of the former Wolves star, stressing that the double substitution of Diogo Jota and Xherdan Shaqiri helped the team to deliver the win as they came from behind to pick all three points against the London team.

The goal scored by Diogo Jota is his fourth goal for Liverpool since he joined Anfield from Wolves in September for an initial fee of £41 million. He has scored also in the Champions League against Midtjylland during the week.

However, the smart decision by manager Jurgen Klopp to bring in Diogo Jota from Wolves is already paying off as he has helped to reduce the burden on other attackers with his goals.

More so, Roberto Firmino is not in the best of form as he has been firing blank but with the help of the new signing, there is little or no pressure on him and the fans are definitely not calling him out.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss also made a smart decision to keep Xherdan Shaqiri at the club despite knowing that he would be having little playing time at the club.

Xherdan Shaqiri was linked away from the club in the summer window but a decision to have him wait has helped the team deliver a win in what looked like a difficult game.

Jurgen Klopp praised the two for helping with the win in his post-match interview “It is not too difficult a decision to bring Diogo and Shaq on because they have trained exceptionally and are in great shape” he said
