Wolves Diogo Jota celebrates club’s first hat-trick in 42 years after dramatic 4-3 win over Leicester City on Sunday.
Diogo Jota made an injury-time strike to seal a pulsating 4-3 win over the Foxes at Molineux and in the process also bagged Wolves’ first top flight hat-trick for 42 years.
22-year-old Diogo Jota became the first Wolves player since John Richards in 1977 – also against Leicester – to score a treble.
Speaking to club’s official site Diogo Jota said: ‘It’s really special, a hat-trick, I know it’s not happened in a long time. This is the second of my career, so it’s like giving your team the win, it feels very good.
‘This is the kind of game I watched as a kid and now being part of it is a good moment for me. In the end, when we win it is the best feeling in the world.
‘It was a very open game, this amount of goals is normal in a game like this, we could have done better, we could have not conceded after leading twice, this is football.
‘We have to analyse it, we were winning twice, one of them by two goals so it shouldn’t happen. In the end we win so we’re happy.’
Jota has five goals this season with all of them coming in his last six outings.
