At the bottom of the hole for several weeks, Jota was able to see the light back on the Tottenham team.
After arriving at Al-Ittihad this summer after two excellent seasons with Celtic, Jota’s adventure in Saudi Arabia quickly turned into a nightmare after the Portuguese winger was not included in the list of players outside the community. Since September, he has only been able to play three matches for his club, all of them in the AFC Champions League.
To revive his career, Jota could be offered the chance to join Tottenham on loan this winter. The rumors that reared their heads a few weeks ago – especially regarding his close relations with coach Ange Postecoglou, whom he knew in Scotland -, It has become more evident in recent days as Spurs look to strengthen after losing several players to injury (Ivan Perisic, Manor Solomon, James Maddison, etc). Joao Filipe, his real name, just has to cross his fingers.
