Jota moved to Anfield in the summer of 2020 to provide competition for Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino in attack. He quickly adapted and scored 21 goals in all competitions in the 2020/21 season.
Although he has played with many stars in the Portuguese national team such as superstar Cristiano Ronaldo or Man United captain Bruno Fernandes, the compatriot Jota wants to be with the most at Liverpool is Man City midfielder Bernardo Silva.
He explained: “Bernardo Silva, for me, he is One of the smartest football players I’ve ever known.
The way he overcame his opponents was very special. I think I’ll choose Bernardo.”
Silva spent 6 years at Man City after leaving Monaco in 2017. He contributed greatly to helping Pep Guardiola’s team win 5 Premier League titles and 1 Champions League championship. The 29-year-old has made more than 200 appearances in all competitions for Man City.
Anyway, Liverpool is not too hungry for Silva, having recruited Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai and Ryan Gravenberch for the midfield this season.
