Since then, Firmino has scored 98 goals and provided 74 assists for Liverpool in 327 appearances, establishing himself as a valuable part of the club’s success.

Although rarely in the headlines, the striker has forged a good cohesion with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, who has since joined Bayern Munich.

Aged 30 and a year from the end of his contract, Firmino has been linked with an exit from Anfield following the club’s blockbuster move for Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota’s recent form in attack.

However, despite reported interest from Juventus, Firmino was named in the starting XI for Liverpool’s Community Shield win over Manchester City at the King Power Stadium.

Speaking to TNT Sports Brasil, he said: “I love this team, this city and the fans.
