Diogo Jota has signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool FC. The Reds announced: “The Portugal international put pen to paper on the deal at the AXA Training Centre on Tuesday to further extend a spell at the club that began when he arrived from Wolverhampton Wanderers in September 2020.”
“Well, [I’m] really proud, I have to say,” Diogo Jota told Liverpoolfc.com after signing his new contract.
“Obviously since I arrived two years ago I established myself as an important player in this team – that’s what I wanted from the beginning.
“Now, signing a new long-term deal, it’s obviously from the club’s perspective proof of the belief in myself as a player. For me, obviously it’s really good to establish I’ll be here for a while.
“So, the beginning of a new season, let’s do it.
“Unfortunately for me I had an upset in this pre-season because I got injured [in the] last game of the season playing with Portugal,” he added. “So I was coming back in this pre-season, I felt it a little bit again. So it will be a few more weeks, I would say.
“When you fight for everything, like we did last year, you just want to do it again. And to do it better, because it’s possible.
“That drive is in me and I know it’s in my teammates and all the staff. We have everything to fight for those titles out there.”
