After an excellent start, the Portuguese has had his form cut short by a serious injury and he has seen the team struggle while he is stuck on the sidelines.
However, at least one thing is going well for the forward, because it appears that he is very, very good at FIFA.
He revealed on Saturday that he is incredibly now no.1 in the world on the game on Playstation - perhaps thanks to the extra time he has had to play since suffering his knee injury.

Jota has also been helped to reach this by having a pretty incredible line up on the game. In addition to his 99-rated card of himself, the 24-year-old has Kylian Mbappe and the original Ronaldo up front, Patrick Vieira and Ruud Gullit in midfield, and a host of other incredible players.
The manager is Jurgen Klopp, perhaps showing his admiration for the Reds' current boss.
Jota managed a pretty ridiculous 30-0 record in the weekend league on the game this week, powering him to the top of the Playstation table.
However, other FUT players may have a better chance soon, with Klopp signalling that Jota may be able to play for Liverpool again in a few weeks' time.
"Diogo, I don't know exactly, a couple of weeks," he told reporters of the forward's return date.
"Two, three, four, I'm not sure."
When Jota gets back to playing in the Premier League, the other players might get a chance to top the FIFA table again.
