“It could go two ways and it was one. And I respect that a lot. It’s completely normal in this kind of long relationship that we have and Bobby has with the club and with most of the players and stuff like this, and with the fans of course."
Firmino’s most recent goal came in the 7-0 win over Manchester United last Sunday after coming on as a substitute, when the 2019/20 Premier League champion got a great reception from the Liverpool fans.
"He told me and then the only other thing he said is, ‘Now I want to bring this wonderful story to a positive end.’"
“It’s pretty special and I loved the reception he got when he came on against United,” Klopp said. “He told me and then the only other thing he said is, ‘Now I want to bring this wonderful story to a positive end.’
“So, that’s it. He is completely here and completely committed, how everybody can imagine. And that’s all we need to know.”
Firmino’s 249 appearances place him third in the list of Brazilian representation in the Premier League, behind the 278 of Willian and 264 of Fernandinho. He is top of the scoring charts for Brazilians, with Gabriel Jesus, his nearest rival, 16 goals behind.
