Diogo Jota is looking forward to a bright future with Liverpool on a personal and collective level after signing his new long-term contract on Tuesday. The No.20 put pen to paper on the deal at the AXA Training Centre to extend his stay at the club, which began in September 2020 following a transfer from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Jota, who scored 34 times in his opening two seasons at Anfield, lifted his first pieces of silverware as a Red in 2021-22, having helped Jürgen Klopp’s side win both the Carabao Cup and Emirates FA Cup during the campaign. The forward is now hoping to force further changes to the Champions Wall in the coming years.

Jota adapted seamlessly into Jürgen Klopp’s squad and scored on his first Premier League appearance for the Reds, against Arsenal at Anfield. He went on to net a dozen more goals during his debut season, including a memorable hat-trick away at Atalanta BC in the Champions League. The forward bettered that tally in 2021-22, striking 21 times in all competitions to help Liverpool lift the Carabao Cup and Emirates FA Cup, as well as finish runners-up in the Premier League and Champions League.

Jota's words

“Well, [I’m] really proud, I have to say,” he 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. 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.”
