Klopp’s false nine.

Of the fiery trio of Mane-Firmino-Salah in Liverpool, only the Egyptian will remain.

Roberto Firmino will leave Liverpool at the end of the season as a free agent. He has already communicated his decision to Jurgen Klopp, they write that they had a positive conversation.

Leading English media and the player’s agent confirmed the information.

Firmino is no longer the basis of Liverpool, everything has gone wrong since autumn

If last season the Brazilian often did not play due to constant injuries that tormented him in autumn, winter and spring, then he lost his place in this season for playing reasons. He started at the base, played cool with Bournemouth (2 + 3) and by mid-October he had scored 12 points on goal + pass in 12 matches.

And then fell into a dry eight-game streak with no scoring action. From that moment on, things got worse.

The last start was on November 12 against Southampton underdog, against whom Firmino scored. He did not make the team for the 2022 World Cup, and at the end of the year he was also injured. In 2023, he appeared in five matches, appearing only as a substitute.

Klopp insisted in January: “I’ve said this before – yes, I want him to stay at the club.” Journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed this: Klopp needs Firmino, and the contract is offered until 2025.

But the names of the heroes in the attacking line of the club have already changed. Over the past year, Liverpool have shelled out €175m for four attacking players – Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez, Cody Gakpo and Fabio Carvalho. Three of them are at least eight years younger than Firmino.

The Brazilian understood everything very well himself. And now he’s off to a new adventure.

Firmino at Liverpool: solid trophies, goals and recognition

At the turn of the decade, Firmino was part of one of the most powerful forward trios in the world. In the summer of 2015, he cost Liverpool 41 million euros, immediately breaking the record for transfers from the Bundesliga.

⚽️ Since then, he has scored 107 goals in 353 games. The most scoring season is 2017/18: 27 goals, 15 of which in the Premier League, another 11 in European competition. And after all, Firmino’s role was not tied to goals – he came as an attacking midfielder, and as a result turned into one of the best false nines of modern football.

🏆 Firmino won seven trophies at Liverpool: all four tournaments in England, as well as the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup. Bobby’s goals brought Liverpool the long-awaited title and victory in the Champions League.

In addition, it was Firmino who won a trophy for the club that has not yet been – at the Club World Cup, Roberto scored the winning goals in extra time in both the semi-finals and the final.

🗨️ “Roberto Firmino is a world class player, almost every day” are the words of Klopp that best describe Bobby’s career at Liverpool. He was not as bright as Mane and Salah, but he worked more than them and was one of the best in every training session. Jürgen loves that.
