Paços de Ferreira
Jota, a Porto native from Massarelos, joined Paços de Ferreira’s youth program in 2013 after moving from Gondomar. He was promoted to the starting lineup at the beginning of the 2014–15 campaign, and on October 19, 2014, he started his senior debut for the Taça de Portugal in a 4-0 home victory against Atlético de Reguengos.
On February 20, 2015, Jota made his Premier League debut, replacing Diogo Rosado late in a 2-2 home tie with Vitória de Guimares.
On May 17, he scored his first goals in the tournament, scoring a brace in a 3-2 victory against Académica de Coimbra at home, becoming the club’s youngest player to score in the top division in the process.
Jota and Atlético Madrid reached a five-year contract on March 14 of this year, which will start on July 1. But on August 26, 2016, he went back to his own country and signed a one-year loan with FC Porto.
On October 1, Jota scored a hat-trick in the first half to lead his team to a 4-0 victory over Nacional. Jota competed in the 2016–17 UEFA Champions League and netted his first goal there on December 7 in a 5-0 home win over Leicester City.
Jota made a season-long loan transfer to Wolverhampton Wanderers of the English Championship on July 25, 2017. On August 15, he scored his first goal in a 3-2 road victory over Hull City.
A permanent agreement with Jota, reportedly worth €14 million, was said to have been reached on January 30, 2018, and it went into force on July 1.
He helped Wolves win promotion to the Premier League in his first season, scoring a career-high 17 league goals while finishing fifth in the league’s top scorer charts. Due to English Football League rules, he had to wear his legal surname on his jersey in the Championship but was able to change it to “Diogo J” after the accomplishment.
Jota signed a long-term contract with Liverpool on September 19, 2020, allegedly for a transfer cost of £41 million, which may increase to £45 million with possible add-ons. Five days later, in a 7-2 victory against Lincoln City, he made his EFL Cup debut by substituting in the second half.
He made his Premier League debut for the team on September 28 by scoring the third goal in a 3-1 victory over Arsenal at Anfield. He scored the game-winning goal in a 2-1 victory at Anfield over Sheffield United on October 25.
Jota scored the club’s 10,000th goal in club history three days later when he scored the first goal against FC Midtjylland in the UEFA Champions League group stage. On November 3, he added a hat-trick in a 5-0 victory against Atalanta B.C. in the Champions League in the same tournament.
In doing so, he made history by becoming the first player to score 7 goals in his first 10 Liverpool outings since Robbie Fowler in 1993. On November 22, Jota became the first Liverpool player to score in each of his first four home Premier League games when he scored the second goal in a 3-0 victory over Leicester City.
Jota was named Liverpool Player of the Month by the team’s fans for his efforts in October. Jota missed three months of action after suffering a leg injury on December 9 versus Midtjylland in a UEFA Champions League dead rubber match.
Jota began representing Portugal at the under-19 level, scoring his first goal in a 6-1 home victory against Turkey on May 29, 2015, as part of the UEFA European Championship qualifying round.
On November 17 of the same year, while he was still 18 years old and had only played for 15 minutes in another qualifier against Israel, the under-21 squad defeated Israel 3-0. He scored twice for the under-21 team in a 3-2 friendly victory over Italy on May 25, 2018, at Estoril.
Jota received his first call-up to the senior team in March 2019, in preparation for the team’s first UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying matches against Serbia and Ukraine. He was a member of the team that won the 2019 UEFA Nations League Finals at home in June but has yet to receive a cap.
He made his debut on November 14 in a 6-0 victory against Lithuania in a UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying match, replacing Cristiano Ronaldo in the 84th minute. On September 5, 2020, he scored his first goal for his country during a 4-1 victory against Croatia at home in the UEFA Nations League.
