John Barnes states that Diogo Jota is the other instance of Jurgen Klopp purchasing players “that fit into his system”, with a Liverpool legend believing the Portuguese could never have such impression at Barcelona or Real Madrid.
Jota warned by many toflourish on Merseyside, with the 23-year-old’s game customized for the controlling Premier League champions.
His successive effort has permited him to reach the targets that he was looking for on six occasions across his last four display – including a Champions League hat-trick score against Atalanta.
Barnes claims that Jota is gambling on a real claim for a No.9 role, however he willingly says that any of the attackers in Liverpool – including Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane – would be as effective elsewhere.
The Reds legend told BonusCodeBets: “Klopp buys players that fit into his system. If Diogo Jota went to another club he
be able to do
what he’s doing at Liverpool
, neither would Sadio Mane, neither would Mohamed Salah.
“Klopp is not turning them into good players, they are good players, Liverpool’s system and style suits them.
“If Jota goes to Barcelona, for example, he won’t go there and score loads of goals or play as well. I don’t think any of the Liverpool players would and that’s what the club wants, to find players who can suit their system to be successful.
“It doesn’t matter whether they’re doing it at other clubs or not, look at Fabinho, he might have been wanted by Manchester City or Barcelona but he does well at Liverpool because Klopp knows how he wants his team to play.
“Jota is a fantastic player, but there’s no way that Jota would be able to go to Real Madrid and do the same thing, it’s all down to Jurgen Klopp and finding those players that suits his style.”
He added: “Mane, Salah and Firmino are still the front three, I don’t think Jota is all of a sudden going to 100% start all of the games.
