The Liverpool’s historic (0-5) win at Old Trafford had a silent protagonist. Neither Salah, nor Jota, nor Keta … Jrgen Klopp only had eyes for Roberto Firmino. “Bobby ‘played remarkably well again. I’m sure people will write books about how he interpreted the false’ 9 ‘position.

minutes … Sometimes it seems like it! There are many things to do on the field: defend, link, shoot … he does all of them and he knows how much we appreciate him, “said the German coach.

Firmino has always been the glue that has joined the trident ‘red’. Their movements across the front line are undetectable and give Salah and Man wings. However, they do

his more modest numbers (70 goals in the five seasons that the three have played together) compared to the other two ‘bugs’ of the ‘MSF’ of the ‘Pool’ (140 Salah and 90 Man)

They have made their performance questioned. “The criticism he receives is ridiculous. He is not having luck in front of goal, but he was outstanding. We have never talked about the goals he scores. Whenever he scores we are happy for him,” said Klopp last season when he signed his

least productive course (nine goals and nine assists in 48 games) with the German

. Since he arrived from Hoffenheim in 2015 for 41 million euros, he had always gone beyond ten targets.

The coach left the Brazilian on the bench in several games to the detriment of Jota.

A trend that has followed this season (he was a substitute, for example, against Porto in the Champions League and Chelsea and Manchester City in the Premier), although Klopp has always blamed it on his rotation plan and his physical condition. “We must think about the whole season. There is no problem,” the German confessed about a Firmino who is one of his favorites: he is the footballer who has played the most games (294) at his command at Liverpool.

The former Borussia Dortmund player has not tired of praising him. “He is very important to us. He is a connector. He is the best offensive defender I have ever seen. He hunts balls and is incredibly intelligent defending. Technically he is at a high level and is able to play in the smallest spaces making good decisions. in a very short time. I’m sure he’s one of the fastest running players. He also scores goals. Everyone on the team loves ‘Bobby’. The way we play is impossible without him. He’s very influential. ” Klopp pointed out.

This season, he has ‘returned’ to his usual numbers (six goals and one assist in nine games)

already approaching the number of so many of the past campaign. Overcome them.

Everyone on the team loves ‘Bobby’. The way we play is impossible without him. It is very influential “,

Jrgen Klopp, Liverpool manager


back to Liverpool’s past

, recovering the freshness and effectiveness of his football, Firmino is key. “His three goals will help him a lot. He did not have a proper preseason because of injuries. It is important and I will never be ashamed to praise him,” Klopp said after the

hat-trick of the Brazilian in the 0-5 at Watford.

His second hat-trick as ‘net’ in 301 games at Anfield (he made another at Arsenal in December 2018) in his first start of the season was a raise for ‘Bobby’. And since then, he has been fundamental against Atltico de Madrid (2-3) and United (0-5) starting from the beginning. He has ‘returned’ …. although for Klopp he never left.
