Rio Ferdinand has hailed the recruitment of Premier League champions Liverpool and the impact that ‘phenomenal’ summer signing Diogo Jota has made at Anfield.


The 23-year-old arrived from Wolves this summer for £41m with little fanfare, with the signing coming as something of a surprise with little build-up. However, the Portuguese has quickly proved to be an inspired purchase, scoring eight goals in his first 12 games for the club, four in the Premier League and four more in the Champions League. Jota was on target again on Sunday as he headed in the second goal of the game en route to a 3-0 Liverpool win over Leicester and Ferdinand cannot speak highly enough of his form.


Many questioned how Jota would fit into the Liverpool side, with their fabled front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, but the new man’s form has made him impossible to drop. ‘You’ve got to give time up for this man, Diogo Jota has come in and four goals in his first four starts for Liverpool [in the Premier League],’ Ferdinand said on Rio Ferdinand presents FIVE. ‘The recruitment at Liverpool, what they’ve done to get him so far what he’s producing is fully justified.

‘Not many people were sitting there going, “let’s get Jota” but what he’s saying to Klopp is, “you can’t afford to drop me, I’m banging in goals week in week out.” ‘That’s what you want at a top club, you want players coming in and having an impact immediately, saying to other players, “yeah you guys are great, I watched you last season, but I’m here to raise the bar.” ‘That’s what he seems to be doing. He’s been nothing short of a phenomenal signing.’ Ferdinand was thoroughly impressed with the Liverpool team as a whole on Sunday as they brushed aside then-league leaders Leicester convincingly.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have been struggling with injuries to key players and were missing the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson at the weekend, but they still produced an imperious display. ‘You see all the pundits, the fans, the media saying, “Liverpool are struggling, they’re going to be on their knees, they’ve lost [Virgil] Van Dijk, Trent [Alexander-Arnold] is out, Mo Salah is out injured, they’re playing against a Leicester side in form, top of the league, Brendan [Rodgers] has got them firing,’ Ferdinand said. ‘Liverpool come out and absolutely slap Leicester off the pitch, backhand, forehand, crash, bang, wallop, goodnight, 3-0 absolutely convincing.’
