As per Liverpool’s official website, Brazilian powerhouse Roberto Firmino has signed a massive new five-year deal with the club.
Upon his arrival from Hoffenheim in 2015, Firmino has gone on to play a key role for us. He is a lethal attacker who is capable of instilling fear into the toughest of opponents and that has reflected in his partnership with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
The wide attackers have been touted as one of the best across Europe and Firmino has linked up with them to establish a new-look Liverpool attack.
The former Bundesliga star has worked wonders with Jurgen Klopp and has thrived under the manager’s guidance at Anfield.
He has contributed a total of 26 goals and 13 assists across competitions for Liverpool so far this season and his displays on the field have been absolutely fantastic to watch.
Undoubtedly, Firmino will be a key player for Brazil in the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Russia as well. He is enjoying some of the best years of his career and the striker will be key to our fortunes in the seasons to come.
Our fellow Liverpool supporters took to Twitter to express their feelings about the new deal. Our fan base is known to be a witty bunch and this time, it was no different. Take a look at some of the best tweets:
That’s loyalty. That’s someone who sees a club going somewhere. Thsts a player who trusts the manager. That’s a player who doesn’t stab the club in the back. That’s the best Brazilian to play for Liverpool.
That’s Roberto Firmino.

Hopefully Roberto Firmino retires here. He understands exactly what it means to play for Liverpool and his love and appreciation for the fans is second to none. He is one of the few players at this club that are genuinely irreplaceable.

Bobby Firmino lifting the Champions League Trophy – whilst looking the opposite way, could quite possibly be the best thing to ever happen in football.

Bobby Firmino no-look signing his new contract while whistling 'Allez Allez Allez' might just be the best thing that's ever happened.

Pretty much since Klopp came in, Firmino has been the heartbeat of this Liverpool team. This season he's elevated his game to another level completely. Brilliant news that he's signed a new long term deal and indicative of how well the club is progressing.

Firmino viritually secured his prime at LFC with his new deal. Given he’s our most important player, and one of those rare player who understands and lives by all the clubs values, morals and culture – this extension feels even better than most. Fingers crossed he retires here

Whatever Can does or doesn’t do in the next few months, pails in significance to Firmino signing a new contract. One of the most important players if not the most important. GET IN! #LFC

Firmino signing a new long term contract is brilliant news he is irreplaceable to Klopps system we would not have being able to find another striker like him anywhere, good end to what had being a bad weekend👍
— John O Sullivan (@Corballyred) April 29, 2018
New contract for Firmino will pay him £180,000-a-week. Pretty good but when you look at his season and the fact that he’s world class and compare him to other players in the league, he should be paid more.

Liverpool target’s agent claims player is happy at current club
Ousmane Dembele’s agent, Moussa Sissoko, has claimed that the Frenchman is not looking to leave Barcelona.
“The club is happy with Ousmane.
“Dembele doesn’t care about criticisms. Some of them are unfair. He is 20, he plays for Barcelona and he had a great start to the season.”
The agent further claimed that the player has to do better and the Frenchman was sick for a while which led to a few controversies.
Sissoko added that the national team manager and Barcelona’s Eric Abidal were happy with the attacker.
“Ousmane keeps working for a big club, the manager likes him and the same goes for Deschamps. I know Abidal is also very happy with how he is training and working for his club.”
Dembele seems to be doing better when compared to the same time frame last season. The Frenchman has scored four goals from 11 La Liga games and has one from two Champions League ties.
The former Borussia Dortmund player would be an amazing signing for the Reds, but we would have to pay a huge amount to sign him from Barcelona.
The 21-year-old would certainly improve our attack, and it will be interesting to see what our activity would be in the winter window.
“It is not easy but I’m trying” – Liverpool star opens up about huge price tag and how he wants to improve
The former AS Roma star has had a brilliant start to his Premier League campaign and has conceded just five goals from 12 games.
Speaking ahead of Brazil’s friendly against Uruguay, the Independent quoted Alisson saying:
“I came here for a high price and some people expect to me to be perfect – it is not easy but I’m trying.”
Alisson added he is working to be perfect in between the sticks and wants to get better with each game.
“I am really, really happy with my move to the Premier League. I’m working really hard to help Liverpool to achieve their goals and also for the Brazil national team.”
Alisson praised our defence for giving him an easy time at the back and claimed that he has to concentrate a lot in games.
“One thing that is important here is the concentration and focus. They are asking me to be really mentally strong.
“My team have a really great defence so it is not often the ball comes near my net.”
The Brazilian has been an excellent signing for the Reds this season, but there have been a few instances where he could have done better.
The goal against Leicester City and one against Arsenal could have been avoided, and hopefully, he will get better in the coming months.

Liverpool summer signing Fabinho is still getting into the groove of things at Anfield. The former Monaco midfielder was slowly integrated into the team by Jurgen Klopp, and the Brazilian has a couple of quality outings under his belt.
Fabinho is a proper defensive midfielder but the Brazilian knows how to pick a pass too. Despite not starting regularly for the Reds, the 25-year-old is a constant in the national side and recently shared a picture of him training with the team during the international break.
The 25-year-old was seen alongside Everton midfielder Richarlison and a few others as they went through the paces.

Fabinho’s introduction has seen Klopp devise a 4-2-3-1 formation where the 25-year-old plays as one of our two midfielders.
The Brazilian has looked comfortable in that position but has to work on his reactions in the Premier League.
The former Monaco man was excellent in our 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade a few weeks ago but wasn’t great in the 1-1 draw against Arsenal.
He was much better in the 2-0 win over Fulham but we are yet to see the best of the midfielder. With just a third of the campaign done, Fabinho has time on his side to get even better this season.
It will be interesting to see how we deal with the packed festive schedule, but there is no doubt Fabinho will play a crucial role for Liverpool in the rest of the season.
