Roberto Firmino has been an excellent player for Liverpool ever since he joined the club in 2015 and as per Liverpool’s official website, the swashbuckling striker has signed a long-term contract with us.
Estimated to run for the next 5 years, the new deal will see Firmino double his wages at Liverpool. According to Daily Mail, Firmino was earning basic wages worth £80,000-a-week but now, the talented Brazilian will receive wages in the region of £150,000-per-week.
That is quite a lot of money and it is great for us to invest so much in a player who has been exceptional for us. Firmino has thrived under Jurgen Klopp and has helped create a new-look Liverpool side with arguably one of the sharpest attacking units across Europe.
This season, he has established a formidable partnership with teammates Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. The trio has been renowned across the footballing community for its exploits in front of the goal. Although Salah has walked away with most of the accolades, Firmino’s contributions have been undeniably crucial for us.
He has contributed 26 goals and 13 assists for Liverpool across competitions this season and it comes as no surprise that the club decided to reward him for his performances.
Firmino is also one of our most loyal players and that was evident from his interview with the club’s official website upon signing the new contract.
“It was an easy decision,” said Firmino.
“The club have taken me in in an incredible way and I’ve grown a lot here with my work with the support of the whole team. I am very, very happy here.
“Everything fits in the best possible way. My teammates are fantastic and I am very grateful to be able to play with them at this club.
“I love to play for Liverpool FC. The fans are excellent and fantastic in how they support us all the way. They support us throughout the games and the work they do during the match is beautiful,” he concluded.
Well, that is music to our ears. To elevate our performances further and get to the next level, a player like Firmino will be important for Liverpool in the seasons to come.
