The Brazilian hitman made history for Liverpool last weekend.
Jurgen Klopp has been singing the praises of Liverpool hitman Roberto Firmino.
The former Hoffenheim striker scored in the 3-0 win at Burnley last weekend to make it 50 Premier League goals.
In doing so, the Liverpool star, a £29 million signing by Brendan Rodgers in 2015 [The Guardian], became the first Brazilian player to ever reach a half-century of goals in England’s top flight.
The 27-year-old has been an ever-present figure for Klopp down the years, and the Reds boss commented on his reliability to the club’s official website.
He said: “Hopefully it stays like this, [him] hardly missing a game! He missed a few and that was not too cool, but Bobby – what can I say about him that not everybody knows already?
“He’s an incredibly important player. He enjoys it so much to play in this team, to be really there with all these super guys around him.”
Firmino has missed only 16 minutes of the 360 that Liverpool have played in the Premier League this season, netting twice.
He has never been Klopp’s most prolific goalscorer, with Sadio Mane and Mo Salah taking the plaudits in that regard, but he’s a massive player for the Anfield club nonetheless.
