The visit of Norwich City has suddenly taken second place as Brentford confirmed that Jota has been recalled from his loan spell in Spain with Eibar. Rangers fans convinced that the Spaniard was heading North of the border to be reunited with former manager Mark Warburton will, instead, have to console themselves with being beaten by Celtic (probably).
With the team crying out for somebody of his ability, this is just fantastic news. Having become a Griffin Park legend in a such a short space of time, fans were devastated (albeit sympathetic) when he was allowed to return to Spain for personal reasons.
Having said at the time that: “This isn’t “goodbye” but more of a “see you later”, that promise is now about to be fulfilled . Not surprisingly, Twitter has exploded. Within minutes his name was trending in London whilst the reaction from fans was as expected.
All the news about his return is on ‘official’ although the jist of it seems to be that Jota will be available for the FA Cup tie against Eastleigh. Now there’s a way to make an entrance…
WELCOME BACK, JOTA !!!!!!!!
