Liverpool’s Firmino confirms departure after eight years with the club

It has been revealed that Brazilian forward, Roberto Firmino, will be departing Liverpool at the end of the current season.

After eight successful years with the Merseyside club, Firmino has reportedly chosen not to renew his expiring contract.

The 31-year-old personally informed manager Jurgen Klopp of his decision and had positive talks with him on Friday, as reported by SkySports.

Although Klopp was reportedly keen on working with Firmino beyond this summer, the player has made the decision to leave with his next move still unknown.

Firmino’s move to Liverpool in 2015 for £21.3m has been highly successful, with 107 goals and 78 assists in 352 appearances, establishing him as a club icon.

He became the highest-scoring Brazilian striker in Premier League history in 2019, with a total of 78 goals in the top flight.

Firmino has won seven titles with Liverpool, including the Champions League in the 2018/19 season and the Premier League title a year later.
