Roberto Firmino's no-look finish

Legendary Liverpool striker reveals how Roberto Firmino can improve

Brazilian star

Roberto Firmino has really shown what he can do for Liverpool this season but there is still one thing he can improve apparently.

The Brazilian heads the Reds attack and has been very impressive this season.

Now considered to be a ‘world-class’ striker by many, the player is starting to find his rhythm in the Premier League and has even scored some outrageous goals in terms of quality.

Though, one legendary Liverpool striker has explained that the Brazilian could chip in with a few more goals but the players around him take that burden off him.

That former player is Robbie Fowler, and he has been pretty complimentary of the current number 9.

‘I didn’t really know much about him if I was totally honest,’ said Fowler

‘Irrespective of whether he got the No 9, 10, 11 or 23 or whatever shirt, if you are playing up front you are expected to score goals and he has delivered.

‘He’s not a nine or a 10 but he’s a forward. Jurgen gives him the opportunity to roam around in the final third of the pitch and he does, his energy is tremendous and he creates chances and scores goals.

‘However, he has got a little bit more in his locker – the type of goals he scores he can score out of nothing.

‘You might want him to chip in with a bit more but everyone is scoring goals.

‘The way Jurgen has the team playing I am perfectly happy with how the goals are bandied about.’

Bad for Arsenal: Thomas Lemar wants Liverpool move

Another player that could help Firmino score more goals is Thomas Lemar.

The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Anfield in the summer window after a failed move previously.

Though, one big boost for Jurgen Klopp’s side is that the player is ready to choose them over Arsenal.
