UNCOVERED: Liverpool signing Diogo Jota admits being big Everton fan

Liverpool signing Diogo Jota has confessed being an Everton fan.

The Wolves striker moved to Anfield yesterday in a deal worth £45m.

And in the past, Jota has admitted being a fan of Merseyside rivals Everton.

Growing up in Portugal, he's revealed he often watched Premier League football and supported the Blues.

He said, "I loved to watch Everton play, especially when they were playing at home.

“It was not a club that fought for the title but that always made life very complicated for the big teams. And I loved that drive and competitiveness. They were relentless."
