Described by Jürgen Klopp as the ‘heart and soul’ of his team, Roberto Firmino is a serial trophy-winning forward who does so much more than just score goals.
Blessed with prodigious physical gifts that complement his exceptional footballing talents, the Brazil international leads Liverpool’s line with a fearsome and influential combination of industry and ingenuity.
The selfless No.9 joined the Reds from Hoffenheim in the summer of 2015 and developed into one of Europe’s premier attackers under Klopp, who teamed him up with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane to devastating effect.
Firmino has won seven trophies during his Anfield career: the Premier League, Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup, Emirates FA Cup, Carabao Cup, UEFA Super Cup and FA Community Shield.
He remains a cornerstone of Klopp’s squad and passed the 300-appearance mark for the club during the 2021-22 season.
Firmino has played in three Champions League finals for Liverpool and netted the winning goals in both the semi-final and final of the 2019 Club World Cup, to ensure Klopp’s side made history by becoming the first team in the club’s history to be crowned world champions.
His trademark smile and kung-fu kick celebrations have helped the man known affectionately as ‘Bobby’ to become a firm fan favourite at Anfield.
“There’s something that the Kop wants you to know, the best in the world is Bobby Firmino…”
