Footage Emerges Of Diogo Jota Telling Referee, 'Next Time I Dive'

Footage Emerges Of Diogo Jota Telling Referee, 'Next Time I Dive'

Diogo Jota told the referee he would dive in Liverpool's 3-0 win over Leicester City last night.

The former Wolves man continued his scintillating run of goalscoring form for Liverpool, notching in his fourth consecutive Premier League appearance at Anfield to set a new record.

He headed home Andy Robertson's superb cross to make it 2-0 in the first half but his comment to the man in the middle has also become a relatively key talking point.

Jota received a push in the back as he tried to shield and protect the ball on the right flank in the second half but didn't get the decision from the referee after choosing to stay on his feet.

Not happy with the call, he told the referee that he'd change his approach in the next challenge.

"Next time I'll dive," the Portugal international could be heard saying.

Liverpool's Diogo Jota Scores Stunning Double Against Atalanta

Since joining Liverpool in a £42 million move, Jota has bagged an impressive eight goals in 12 games and made a seamless transition into the Premier League champions' forward line.

Former Reds' midfielder Danny Murphy waxed lyrical over Jota's latest performance and discussed how he's already proving to be a fine addition for the Merseyside outfit.

"Diogo Jota, talk about hitting the ground running," Murphy said on Match of the Day last night.

"He was all over the place. He started on the right of the three, where Salah plays normally, drifts into the holes into the centre of the pitch, because he's so desperate to get on the scoresheet and make an impact on the game.

"He mixes his game up well, dropping deep, linking up the play. And what I like about him is the amount of runs he makes off the ball, which is what all good players do.

"And it's also the fact of his bravery to go and find spaces, wait, and the intensity of his runs.

"He keeps getting in there, he's a brilliant option, another source of goals for Liverpool and he deserves credit for how he's adapted. For any defender picking him up, it must be a nightmare."
