    Got to be one of the best and most interesting player interviews I've read for a long time - loved the insight into Jota as a person and player. You can see why he is so tough on the pitch - I think that's what impressed me last season (as well as his obvious skill), he loves getting stuck in.

    Nice story !!

    What a terrific lad and what a gutsy player .... and what a thrill to see his relationship with Raul blossoming with every game .... the J MEN !!

    He wants to play in the premier league for a long time, that’s a great bit of news for us hopefully

    One of the best player interviews I’ve ever read.

    Reminded me of my sense of wonder about going to places like Eastville and Deepdale with my Dad and his mates.

    I believe he's many fans' favourite player. Mine for sure. And in the current team there's a big competition for that slot.

    Great read. Thanks.

    He comes across brilliantly, and the little mention of his mate Ruben gives hope for them both being here for a while to come yet!

    Typifies the lack of ego and arrogance in this squad and management team. Love him.

    Absolutely loved Diogo before, now after reading that I'm besotted. What a lovely, down-to-earth kid.

    My favourite part about him isn't the goals or the technical ability but my admiration for how much he's been kicked from pillar to post for 18 months but just gets back up, dusts himself down and goes again.

    Believes in and knows this project even better than we do. We all hoped it would work out at the beginning of last season, you just feel Jota (and Neves) knew it would and now everyone can 'see their qualities'

    They believed in themselves and delivered with confidence and I can't wait to see where the likes of Jota can take us next. The biggest hurdle was the start of the season and he kept going and now is reaping the rewards

    Genuinely likeable and intelligent young man and a credit to the club

    If you look at our recruitment Diogo typifies the type of young men who we've brought in, talented, determined, full of belief but also very humble. We are very blessed.

    When mates who support other teams talk about us struggling to hold onto the likes of Diogo, Neves, Boly and Nuno, they just aren't close enough to appreciate these qualities and the fact that they are here to see through a project. Yes there will be interest and offers come the summer, that's inevitable, but interviews like this cement the belief that these payers are here to achieve as a group and for Wolves.

    This lad has everything.

    Ability, determination, work-rate, aggression, and seemingly a good head on his shoulders.
    Same goes for Jimenez really, but at 6 years his junior, Jota is the more exciting as to what he can become.

    Sorry I said you were playing **** for the first half of the season Diogo (but you were).
    We’re all glad you’re back.

    To use the modern, oft used term, the lad is grounded. He has the unbeatable combination of aptitude and attitude.

    Of all the amazing players we have, and I love this team, if you asked me to pick a favourite it would be Jota, such a smart player and a hard little *******

    Funny how people slagged jota off earlier in season

    Just shows how fickle and impatient people are

    I'm sure many would agree

    It's great to see when these technically gifted foreigners really embrace the physical side of the English game

    there have been many times when he could have taken a shot but instead, unselfishly, passed it to the open man. that's the type of footballer that needs to play for wolves.

    Out of current crop of hugely talented players, Diogo is the one whose star will shine the brightest in the future. He will play at the very highest level (hopefully with us). I love watching him play and so proud he is a Wolves player.

    Could have took the easy option and stayed in Madrid and still nowhere near the first team. Instead took the gamble and paid off.

    Wonder how many other days we sold the project to but didn’t want to risk it.

    Fair play to Jota he is now reaping the benefits

    As much as I rate Jota, for me it's Neves who I think will get to the very top - I genuinely believe he'll become a key player at Juve or Real or the like

    Jota still has obvious deficiencies in his game which he has plenty of time to fix. Getting a decent shot off quicker and improving his passing accuracy. Do that and he can go further. Age and attitude very much on his side.

    Love watching him play.

    Hes being interviewed on Central tv now , speaks very very well, says he came to the wolves for the project, his friends didnt understand why he came, but he knew straight away it was right for him, to progress & close the gap on other teams, he says hes a simple guy who enjoys football.
