Cristiano Ronaldo believes Wolves forward Diogo Jota sings the right tune for Portugal
Cristiano Ronaldo believes Diogo Jota is the best player in the Portugal squad - at singing.
The Wolves midfielder was a member of the Portugal group which won the UEFA Nations League earlier this summer.
The 22-year-old did not get to win his first cap but he certainly made an impression in other ways, not least on five-time world player of the year Ronaldo at his initiation ceremony.
Jota said: "We had to do a song and he said I was the best. I was very proud of that!"
Despite not playing, Jota believes he will take much from the experience, particularly working alongside Ronaldo.
He said: "It was a short tournament but you still have the chance to feel the international games, that pressure. And it was in our own country so you feel it a little bit more.
"You can learn with those players, like Cristiano, who are used to these kind of games.
"During my childhood I watched him on TV as a kind of reference for me. Now I have the opportunity to play with him and of course I tried to learn off him as much as possible.
"The way he works - even when the training has finished he will go to do sprint work, or do gym work before training. That kind of thing is what you can learn. That's a normal day for him."
Jota was one of four Wolves players in the Portugal squad along with Rui Patricio, Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho, team-mates he also looks up to.
The former Atletico Madrid player said: "Four players in the squad - same as Benfica. Nobody could have thought that a club in a foreign country could have so many players in the national team.
"Joao, Rui and even Ruben were working with the national team a long time before me and that helped me get involved in the process and the environment."
