Firmino, along with teammates Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are the three strikers who brought a series of glory to Liverpool. However, the Brazilian player is facing a worrying future after losing his position to Diogo Jota while both are fit.

Injuries have left Firmino with only three Premier League starts since October and he has only scored four goals this season. However, coach Jurgen Klopp does not pay much attention to the statistics, insisting that he is an important player for the team.

 Firmino was advised to stay at Liverpool.

And Selecao legend Rivaldo has advised Firmino to stay at Liverpool, despite the arrival of Luis Diaz adding to the competition for his place. Speaking to Betfair, Rivaldo said: ” Roberto Firmino lost to Diogo Jota and now Luis Diaz is another threat to his time on the pitch.”

 “Many people have said that he should leave in the summer so as not to affect Brazil’s place in the World Cup squad. But I don’t agree with that. Once he comes back from injury, he will. should keep fighting to get back to the starting position at Liverpool.”

Signing for a new club near the World Cup is a big risk with no guarantee that he will be a great star there, so I think it’s best for him. is to stay at Liverpool and convince Jurgen Klopp again.”
