Diogo Dalot childhood

Diogo Dalot childhood

was spent in a devoted Christian music family. His parents are true music lovers and fell in love with each other in the church while singing in the choir. The sweet family are extremely supportive as most of the times they wear Diogo's jersey and participate in his matches.

His father is also a passionate football lover and he wanted to be a player but he didn’t, since Diogo's grandma made him go study and no football because, back then, it was difficult to be a football player. So he instead made a vision for his son in the future. He knew those names [Diogo Dalot] would be catchier.

In

Diogo Dalot life story

when he was even a toddler, his talent was very much observable for all to see as soon as he started kicking the ball. Diogo Dalot’s passion for football saw him being enrolled in a local youth team, Fintas academy who gave him the opportunity to exhibit his talents.

Ever since joining Fintas academy in his hometown of Braga at the age of 6, Dalot seemed to be destined for greatness and fame which he got at that little age. And that was most certainly a result of his ability to handle the ball.

His popularity got to a stage that Fintas coaches had to allow him to train with children three years older than him, which is definitely tremendous for that age group. Surprisingly, when he was 8, both

Benfica

and Porto showed interest to sign him. His parents eventually ended up choosing FC Porto due to distance.

Dalot made fast progress and became globally recognized as one of the top prospects at Porto’s academy. Shockingly, by the age of 16, he was already training with the first squad. This feat attracted the eyes of Mourinho who acquired him for United on the 6th of June 2018. 

Diogo Dalot sister

Diogo Dalot has been raised with her lovely sister, Mariana whom he regards as his best friend right from his childhood days. Not surprisingly, she was the first person in the Dalot family who inherited the singing gene from her mum and dad as she is a professional musician.

In light of her dream of revenge in music, Mariana Dalot moved to her Majesty's land to study and try her luck beyond the classroom. And once, when her younger brother, moved to

Manchester United

, she gave a concert in a London bar that she hoped to be "just the beginning".

In the audience of The Half Moon Putney, the young artist was attended by her parents, friends and, most importantly, the brother who proudly shared several videos on Instagram. "Pride" or "the singeris there", were some of the comments of our professional player.

The gifted artist has interpreted some various themes, in English and Portuguese in her musical performance. And while Diogo is establishing himself in lawns, she is proving herself with her musical talent on the stage. She is also immensely supportive as most of the times she has accompanied his brother in the games along with their parents.

But ironically Diogo is not as much supportive as her, in as much as he is an extremely committed professional player, who once missed an important concert organized by Mariana so as to sleep well and prepare for a match. 

Diogo Dalot professional career

Diogo Dalot joined the youth academy of FC Porto in 2008 when he was just nine years old back then. After playing some games in the B-team of FC Porto in the second league, he made his debut in the first team of FC Porto on October 13th, 2017.

He was in the first eleven in the 6-0 victory over

Lusitano GC

for the Taça de Portugal. Several months later he debuted in the Premeira Liga against Rio Ave FC (5-0) win. After only six games for their first team, he got contracted with Manchester United in June of 2018 for a five-year deal with a19 million fees paid for him.

He debuted in the Champions League stage game against

Young Boys

in September 2018. Dalot, who joined Manchester United under Jose Mourinho in 2018, had not made the influence that was expected of him, joining as a world-class youth international with high potential.

A long list of injuries has occurred, causing the former Porto player to miss a fair chunk of his development and a failure to adapt properly to English football with numerous games.

As Dalot had three years remaining on his deal at United, on 4 October 2020, he joined Italian Serie A club Milan on loan until 30 June 2021. Reportedly AC Milan could try to secure the services of Manchester United's Diogo Dalot permanently this summer.

Yet some argued that he has mainly struggled to make an impact in Serie A, starting just four top-flight matches. Still, Dalot has played an important role for Milan in the Europa League and Coppa Italia this season, and so far he appeared 13 times for the club, scoring one goal for them he is presumably hopeful of staying in Milan beyond the end of the season.

He is a technically talented right-back and is also very agile, skilled in pushing, fastball and chain and capable of providing assists to teammates. Armoured with a good shot, he is particularly competent in the push phase, but his structured physique makes him very qualified in the defensive one as well, where he stands out in the aerial game and the diagonals.
