Diogo Jota was one of the players to arrive at Anfield in the last transfer window.
Liverpool reportedly paid Wolverhampton Wanderers in excess of £40m to acquire his services and the 23-year-old has been an instant hit for the Merseyside club.
The forward has scored seven goals in all competitions for the Reds this season, which includes a hat-trick against Atalanta in the Champions League and scoring winnera in the league against Sheffield United and West Ham United.
Last season, the Portugal international netted 16 times and registered six assists in all competitions for Wolves.
Speaking to TVI24’s program Einsteins TVI, Jota talked about his passion for the FIFA video game series.
“I like to play, I always liked it, it was always something I always did, I left school, did my homework and then I liked to stay playing. I also went to the backyard to play ball, but I always spent a lot of time holding on to the controller,” Jota said, as quoted by O Jogo.
The attacker isn’t pleased with the latest rating he has received from the makers of the video game, EA Sports, and is of the belief they didn’t expect him to join Jürgen Klopp’s side.
“I think they were taken by surprise when I went to Liverpool. They thought I was going to stay at Wolverhampton and then they didn’t even bother to upgrade my card,” the Liverpool summer signing explained.
“I kept the data from last season, and despite being one of the best scorers in the Europa League and everything, they didn’t even bother.
“As long as they send me my 99 card, which it seems every professional player is entitled to, I am happy.”
Jota is currently on international duty with Portugal, who are set to take on Andorra, France and Croatia.
