What are the lyrics to the brilliant chant for Liverpool striker ‘better than Figo’ after Carabao Cup brace against Arsenal

What are the lyrics to the brilliant chant for Liverpool striker ‘better than Figo’ after Carabao Cup brace against Arsenal

Liverpool star Diogo Jota has already been named the best centre-forward in the Premier League by ex-England winger Trevor Sinclair.

And now the Portugal striker has been recognised for his stunning form with his own song from the Anfield faithful.

Jota is Liverpool’s second highest scorer this season with 14 goals to his name

Jota sent the Reds through to the Carabao Cup final with both goals in a 2-0 victory at Arsenal on Thursday night.

It continues a fine season for the 25-year-old, having officially usurped Roberto Firmino in Jurgen Klopp’s famous front three alongside Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

And now Jota has joined the original trio in commanding his own tune from Liverpool supporters that was being belted out at the Emirates.

But how does the song go?

Well, based on a tune sung by River Plate fans in Argentina, the lyrics are:

“Oh, he wears the number 20,

He will take us to victory,

And when he’s running down the left wing,

He’ll cut inside and score for LFC.

“He’s a lad from Portugal,

“Better than Figo don’t you know,

Oh, his name is Diogo!”

Only Salah has more goals than Jota in the Premier League this term, with the likes of Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku considerably beneath the former Wolves striker.

Even Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo has slowed down in recent weeks – and Sinclair believes Jota is the pick of the bunch right now.

“I think he’s the best,” the ex-Man City and West Ham player told the talkSPORT Breakfast.

“Kane’s not quite at it, Lukaku isn’t firing. I think Jota is the best centre-forward in the league.

“He’s unfortunate that he’s come into a Liverpool side where the front three have their positions set in stone.

“Since he left Wolves for Liverpool, he’s upped his game.”
