It was quite a weekend for Liverpool. Friday finally saw the Reds announce arguanly the club’s biggest signing of the Premier League era in the form of Thiago Alcantara. Saturday saw the welcomed attacking addition of Diogo Jota while the following day saw Jurgen Klopp and his team maintain their 100 per cent start in the Premier League following a 2-0 win against Chelsea.
It’s all still sinking in following an unforgettable 48 hours for the club. Thiago and Jota represent a serious statement of intent from the reigning English champions who have their heart set on defending their PL crown.
Footage recently emerged of Thiago’s signing day at the club and it had supporters swooning all over social media.
The behind the scenes insight into how the deal unfolded was hugely successful amongst fans and it prompted calls for the same footage to be released of Jota – who recently joined the Reds in a £41m deal from Wolves [BBC].
Liverpool swiftly responded and have since released footage of Jota’s signing day video which unsurprisingly has been a big hit with supporters.
The video shows the Portugal international fulfilling his media duties, filming some amusing clips, being shown the famous This is Anfield Sign as well as his first exclusive interview as a Liverpool player.
