#Donkomi: Diogo Jota extends Liverpool contract

Written by Amenorhu Kwaku

Diogo Jota has 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.

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.

Speaking to the club’s website:

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