Diogo Jota’s Best XI: Five Liverpool Teammates Included

Diogo Jota’s Best XI: Five Liverpool Teammates Included

Diogo Jota has named his all-time best eleven of players he’s played alongside.

Jota has shared the pitch with an array of stars both for Liverpool and Portugal.

Ahead of Euro 2024, Jota was faced with the difficult task of choosing his greatest ever team-mates.

The 27-year-old ended up selecting five current Liverpool players as well as himself.

However, there was one significant omission as a key former Liverpool star was left out.

Jota chose Alisson in goal, with four other Liverpool players making the cut in Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgin van Dijk, Alexis Mac Allister and Mohamed Salah.

There are also five Portugal players in the team – Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo, Ruben Neves, Bernardo Silva and, unsurprisingly, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Perhaps Jota’s most controversial selection is that he has included himself in the side ahead of former Liverpool winger Sadio Mane.

Mane is now at Al-Nassr following a spell at Bayern Munich but he was team-mates with Jota at Anfield between 2020 and 2022. 

Another key omission is that of Portugal and Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes. 

Since signing for Liverpool in 2020, Jota has played 145 games for the club and has scored 56 goals.
