On The Spot | Diogo Jota

Wolves’ number 18 goes under the spotlight to answer ten randomly-selected questions on a wide range of topics.

#2 What opposition stadium do you like playing at most?

I loved playing at the Juventus stadium. It was a Champions League game and they had a spectacular thing with lights, similar to Wolves, but that was the first time I saw it. The environment of the game in a knockout stage, I was proud to be there.

#6 What is the greatest goal of all time in football?

For me, it’s the Roberto Carlos free-kick. You cannot explain what happened, it’s an unbelievable goal and for me it’s one of the best ever.

#14 What is your favourite TV programme of all time?

I really like quiz shows. I remember Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and I like the tension surrounding the questions.

#19 What new country do you want to visit next?

I’d like to visit Indonesia. I saw Bali was a really nice place, so that’s where I want to spend my holiday next summer if I can.

#27 What new hobby would you like to get into?

Last summer I was trying to learn tennis because it’s a sport I always liked to watch and now I want to get out and play a proper game with someone. I’m getting good, but still practicing. I like to see the games on TV, but I still have a long way to go.

#28 Do you watch football on TV at home?

I try to watch as much football as I can. Of course, my girlfriend doesn’t want to see too much football at home, but I’ll try to watch any competition. Once a coach told me that each game is like an open book you can learn from.

#31 What wastes the most time in your day?

I think it’s video games or even small games on the phone. I play the PlayStation a lot, but even when I go to the bus or bathroom, I like to play Candy Crush.

#41 What's the best piece of advice you've received in football?

To be humble. All my Academy years, I learned with different coaches saying the same thing. There is always someone better than you, so don’t think you’re the best. You need to keep on growing over your career.

#43 What's the most beautiful place you've ever visited?

Last year I went to the Maldives and it was fantastic place. The beach had houses on top of the water and the weather was really nice, so it was good.

#46 What song do you have to sing along to when you hear it?

I don’t like to listen to much music, I’m not that kind of guy, but I like Sting. When I hear Fields of Gold I always get in the rhythm, I don’t know the words completely but I do it my way.
