Liverpool are cruising towards a Champions League qualification for the second consecutive time and it seems inevitable that they would qualify at the end of this season.
The Red’s form has been helped by some of their star men this season, not the least of which is Roberto Firmino. The 26 years old Brazilian may end this season as the best in his career as he continues to score and assist goals.
He has scored 20 goals and assisted 11 this season already and his intelligent back heel assist to setup Mohamed Salah on Sunday delighted football fans across the globe.
One person who has been blown away by Roberto Firmino is former Arsenal star Thierry Henry. The French man who is now a pundit admitte,d that he would have loved to play alongside the Brazilian after watching his intelligent flick to setup Salah’s goal.
When asked who his best performer was in Liverpool’s game against Southampton, the French man replied “Roberto Firmino, not for the first time”
“I would have liked to have played with this guy” he added.
The Reds returned to action on Tuesday when they visit Porto for the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 clash.
