Wolves star Jota winds up Man Utd ahead of tonight’s clash and says foreign fans only care about Man City and Liverpool now
WOLVES forward Diogo Jota has taken a pop at Manchester United ahead of their Premier League clash tonight and said foreign fans don’t care about them any more.
United travel to Molineux off the back of a 4-0 smashing against Chelsea last weekend.
But Wolves striker Jota told the Daily Mail fans at home in Portugal care more for Manchester rivals City and Liverpool as they are “winners”.
He said: “Of course Man United will always be a great team. But when City and Liverpool are winning titles, they have more fans supporting them in Portugal.
“It has to do with the moment and we have to be honest and say that Liverpool is having a better moment right now than Man United.
“Everyone likes winners and when the younger fans look at other countries, they like to see a team that is winning like Man City and Liverpool.”
Solskjaer was twice beaten by Wolves last season, with two 2-1 losses – in the league and FA Cup.
Jota netted in both games, but claims a reformed United defence with new signings Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka has made them “stronger”.
He added: “This is a new season – nothing to do with matches last season.

“If you looked at Manchester United in their first game against Chelsea, they looked very strong.
“I think it’s going to be hard for us. We have to hold them when we need to, then try to get on the attack.
“United have tried to improve their team and have had time to work with each other in pre-season.”
