After the match, Jota was asked about his immediate link-up with the new signing and his response has got fans talking. You can watch the footage below.
Jota said: “I really like these kinds of players, I have to tell you.
“They just see these passes. It’s almost like, you just need to make the run and they will see it and that’s amazing.”
He continued: ““I start to see I can link up very well with him [Mac Allister] and hopefully we can take this into the season.”
Fans were quick to react to Jota’s words on social media.
One said: “Jota basically says he was tired of hoofball.”
Another tweeted: “The happiness in his eyes when he says "they can see the passes””
A third fan added: “Look at Jota’s face knowing Mac and Szoboszlai will be behind him.”
Someone else wrote: “Man said I played with hoof boy hendo now mans got ballers.”
Whilst a fifth commented: “The face of a man who knows he no longer has to play with Hooferson.”
