When Brendan Rodgers signed Firmino back in the summer of 2015 for £29m Liverpool fans was so excited to see what he would bring to the team alongside his Brazilian team mate Philippe Coutinho. Brendan Rodgers didn’t do well to start of the season neither did Firmino he was finding it hard to find his form and find his feet in the team. Brendan Rodgers was sacked in October of 2015 and replaced by Jurgen Klopp and that fixture where Liverpool beat Man City 1-4 at the Eithad Stadium and where Firmino scored one and assisted one we all saw what Firmino could bring to Liverpool. Roberto Firmino just looked a completely different player under Jurgen Klopp looking sharp looking like a £29m player. Firmino continued playing well under Klopp and eventually was moved upfront and was preferred to Daniel Sturridge when Sturridge was fit most games and Firmino didn’t really let Klopp down. Firmino has still continued his good form into this season by scoring 3 and putting in brilliant performances. Firmino not only scores and assists goals he is a worker like Adam Lallana Firmino wants that ball of the opposition he will chase down the player to win that ball back. Firmino has become a first team regular under Klopp and if we look back £29m doesn’t seem a bad price considering how well he has been playing under Jurgen Klopp.
