Liverpool extend contract with Portuguese winger Diogo Jota

 

Portuguese winger Diogo Jota has extended his contract with Liverpool, the English Premier League club announced on Tuesday, with his new deal reportedly set to expire in 2027.

“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 club said in a statement.

After signing the deal, Jota said: “Obviously since I arrived (in Liverpool) 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,” the 25-year-old winger added.

Liverpool’s German manager Jurgen Klopp welcomed the extension, calling it “brilliant news.”

“His (Jota’s) qualities are obvious. He scores goals – not a bad quality – he works unbelievably hard for the team, his pressing and counter-pressing are on an unbelievable level, he can play in all of our attacking roles and he has an incredible attitude. Not a bad package. Not bad at all,” Klopp added.

Jota, who previously played for FC Porto and Atletico Madrid before, joined Liverpool from Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2020.

He scored 34 goals and made nine assists in 85 games for the Reds.
