Diogo Jota watched Liverpool exhibition against Watford from the bench. The Portuguese forward, who is used to play every game despite starting or coming off the bench, did not play a single minute.
'Mundo Deportivo' revealed that Jurgen Klopp was saving Jota up for the Atletico game in the Champions League.
The forward came back from the international break with fatigue and some muscular aches, so the German manager decided to rest him against Watford as Liverpool grabbed a cofortable away 5-0 win.
Jota will face his former team, where he could not manage to succeed. Despite not having playing time at Atleti, he recently said that he does not regret his signing for the Spanish side.
