Diogo Jota: Family were unhappy with Wolves move

Diogo Jota admits his family were unhappy with his decision to join Wolves.

He joined from Atletico Madrid, initially on loan, last season before making a permanent switch for around £12m last year and helped Nuno Espirito Santo's side to the Sky Bet Championship title.

Jota said: "Many people in Portugal criticised me - and Ruben (Neves). They were saying 'you are going from a Champions League club to a lower division in another country, are you crazy?'

"I said, 'No, I believe in the project and then, if everything goes well, like I expect, next season you have the reason'.

"Fortunately everything went well, and we are here now, and everyone understands now. Me and Ruben have improved as players and now no one doubts our qualities."
