Jota told the Athletic about Klopp


“He’s a fantastic manager who took care of me. When I first arrived, he had a meeting with me and he explained how the team works.

"Then it’s down to the player to try to learn as fast as you can and to prove to the manager that you can be an important player for him on the field."

He went on talking about Ronaldo: “My earliest memories are from the 2004 Euros when Portugal reached the final and unfortunately we lost, I was seven and I remember it well. Football has always been my passion.

“Cristiano Ronaldo was my hero. At that time, he was 19 but he was already playing at the Euros with so much quality. During my childhood, he was at Manchester United and Real Madrid. As Portuguese guys, we always looked upon him as our main reference.”
