Diogo Dalot is a renowned Portuguese defender who plays for Manchester United and the Portugal national team

Diogo is the product of the Porto youth system and made his senior debut with the B team in 2017

He played for Ac Milan on loan from Manchester United before returning to the club in summer 2021.

Bought a new team bus for his boyhood club from his first Manchester United salary

After having made eight appearances for Porto, Dalot was signed by Manchester United in 2018 for a reported fee of £19 million

He spent his first salary on his boyhood club, which shows that he has not forgotten his roots. 

The Braga-based club, Fintas Football School, was the club he played at before joining FC Porto and thought of doing something for the club from the part of the salary he received from United

The Fintas school coordinator revealed that they were invited to have dinner at Dalot's parent's home and was unaware of his big surprise as Dalot kept it a secret until he connected them to Skype and asked them to go outside. 

To their surprise, there was a van for the club on the doorstep. It was a very gratifying gesture from Dalot.

Has an elder sibling who is in the field of music

Dalot has an elder sister, Mariana Dalot. She has chosen her career outside sports. 

She is in the field of music, and with her dream of becoming a musician, she made her beginning with a concert in a London Bar in 2018

After the concert, she confessed to not having felt much satisfaction and happier as the dream she had been thriving for so long finally became true. 

She also said that she was ready to make her dream a reality.

The brother and sister duo are supportive of one another's career. Marian is usually seen cheering her brother from the stands.

The reason behind using his middle name was his father

Dalot was born Jose Diogo Dalot Teixeira to his parents Anabela and Antonio Jacinto Teixeira, but he chose to use his middle name instead of first and last because of his father, Antonio.

As per Dalot, his father did not find his name catchy to stand out and urged him to go with the middle name. 

His father, Antonio, aspired to become a footballer, but his dream was not fulfilled as his grandmother forbade him from playing as it was tough to become a footballer at the time. 

Now, his father sees his dream in him.
