Jota enjoying pre-season

Diogo Jota has joined up with the Liverpool squad at their Austria training camp after taking a break following his Euro 2020 escapades with Portugal.

“It’s my first pre-season with Liverpool because last year when I arrived the season was already in the second game I think,” he told the official site. “I’m trying to learn this new way of work but I’m ready and it’s football at the end of the day.

“There’s a great atmosphere here. It’s tough work but to see so many players back fit again and raring to go must be so encouraging.

“It’s like a relaxed environment. Obviously we are here together, we have a lot of free time, we are always here, but we know when we go to the pitches to work hard and that is the main part of our day.

“But then we have a lot of free time, we can spend time together and that is good for the team. At the end of the day, we are living here fit and with our confidence very high.”

Jota will be hoping to play a part in Thursday night’s friendly with Hertha Berlin.
