After the Reds triumphed, Diogo recalled a moment when the players lifted the trophy and explained how he treasures his first winners’ medal at United, which has only given him added hunger to achieve more as a Red.
“I remember saying to Rapha [Varane] after when we were up there lifting the trophy ‘we have to come back here, we have to win again, we have to win more’.
“Because it was really special from up there to see all the fans celebrating and everybody, the [United] half of the stadium was full. That feeling of winning is something indescribable.”
When Maysie asked where his medal is kept, Diogo said: “It’s in a frame now with the shirt, I put it on the frame already and I have replica of the trophy.”
