Roberto Firmino (31) is also leaving.스포츠토토
Florian Plettenberg of Germany’s ‘Sky Sports’ said on the 3rd (Korean time), “Firmino has left Liverpool after eight years. It is a decision. The player personally informed manager Jurgen Klopp today. We had a good conversation.”
He went on to add that “Firmino will not have a contract extension with Liverpool. He will leave the club as a free agent (FA) this summer.”
Firmino left Hoffenheim in the summer of 2015 for a transfer fee of 41 million euros (approximately 57 billion won) and wore a Liverpool uniform. He immediately jumped to the starting lineup and was praised for scoring 11 goals and 11 assists in 49 official games in his debut season.
Afterwards, he increased his destructive power by building a ‘wife line’ with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah. Firmino diverted his attention with a false nine, and Mane and Salah scored. He also performed his role brilliantly, recording a number of attack points.
Firmino was consistent with 12 goals and 11 assists in 41 games in the 2016-17 season, 27 goals and 17 assists in 54 games in the 2017-18 season, and 16 goals and 8 assists in 48 games in the 2018-19 season. However, he showed poor form as his ups and downs intensified from the 2019-20 season. Unsatisfactory play continued in many ways, such as his determination and involvement in build-up. His frequent injuries also played a role.
In addition, he joined a number of competitors such as Diogo Jota, Luis Dias, Darwin Núñez, and Cody Gakpo. Firmino lost his place after the World Cup, and has recently been on the ground only as a substitute. facing a difficult situation.
In the end, I decided to say goodbye to Liverpool. Firmino’s contract expires in June 2023. I had a conversation with manager Klopp at the point of entering into discussions about renewing the contract. And he ended by conveying that he had no intention of extending it.
With this, Firmino’s Liverpool life came to an end at the end of this season. It’s been 8 years since he joined. Firmino recorded 107 goals and 78 assists in 352 official games and lifted 7 championship cups.
Meanwhile, only Sala is left in the ‘wife line’. Earlier, the trio collapsed when Mane left for Bayern Munich ahead of the 2022-23 season. In addition, as Firmino’s breakup is predicted, it is gradually disappearing into memories.
