Diogo Jota has expressed his pride at Liverpool supporters adapting their famous Fernando Torres chant to his name.

Kopites have recently switched up the lyrics of the song they used to celebrate Torres with in their latest homage to the current Reds No.20.

It's particularly meaningful for Jota as he grew up idolising the prolific Spaniard and was briefly a teammate of his. 

Explaining on the latest episode of Off The Pitch, presented by Sonos, the forward says: "For me, I have to say that makes it even more special because I liked him a lot. 

"Then I signed for Atletico Madrid, and my first game was a friendly and I played up front with him, so that was nice. I still have the picture on my phone. 

"And now, having the same song, it's unpredictable."
