Exclusive: Steve Bull bemoans Wolves not replacing Diogo Jota

In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Steve Bull, who is a Wolves Hall of Famer, believes cracks have started showing at Molineux since Diogo Jota was sold to Liverpool, with the club not replacing him adequately.

During his time at Wolves, Jota had 63 goal involvements in 131 appearances which saw Liverpool sign him last summer for £41 million, and the Portuguese winger has returned 10 goals in 21 games.

Have Wolves wasted the Jota money?

Yes, they are a worse side now!

No, they're planning for the future!

Wolves are currently experiencing their worst season in the Premier League under Nuno Espirito Santo which sees them just nine points above the bottom three, and Bull believes the cracks have started to show this season.

Speaking about how big of a miss Jota has been for Wolves and how he is now starting to get the full appreciation he deserves from Wolves fans that are missing him, Bull told FFC exclusively:

“When you split a trio up, then you’re going to see the cracks appear, and we haven’t actually filled the ones left by Jota yet.

Diogo Jota is a very good player, he’s absolutely unbelievable. He is like a British Bulldog and he’s only about five-foot-tall, but he was solid and people couldn’t knock him off the ball.

Jota scores goals and helps out other players to make them better. He has been sadly missed at Wolves and it’s typical that he came back and scored against us.”

Who is this player?

The Portuguese international currently has six goals in the Premier League this season, which would make him Wolves’ top scorer as Ruben Neves and Pedro Neto both have five respectively.

Despite receiving £40 million for Jota, Wolves have not replaced his creativity it goal-scoring ability from out wide as Fabio Silva and Daniel Podence have not performed as many had hoped.
