Wolves forward Diogo Jota claims the club’s successes this season have decided his decision to join despite concerns from his own family.
Jota originally arrived at the Premierleague side on loan from Atletico Madrid at July 2017 and left with a permanent switch in January 2018.
Wolves, that were promoted at the end of the year, face Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter finals on Saturday.
“Many men and women in Portugal criticised me,”” the 22-year-old said.
Figuring out where the scepticism came out, Jota said:”[The] public and papers, however I have family also.
“Not criticising mepersonally, however asking’Why do you do this?’
“My father always encouraged me personally, and the remainder of my loved ones, however, my uncle tried to express’Why do you do so?’ It is a component of this match .”
Wolves, that are seventh in the Premier League, never have reached the FA Cup semi finals since 1998.
Even the Portuguese has scored six goals in his past 13 matches and scored a hattrick against Leicester at January.
Speaking about the reaction to the move, Jota said:”They’re saying’you are moving from a Champions League club to a lesser branch in yet another country, are you mad?’
“I said,’NoI have confidence from the project and after that, if all goes well, just like I expect, the next season you have the rationale’.
“Luckily, everything went well and we are here now, and every one knows now.”
