27 goals Prolific Liverpool attacker drops massive hint at new contract
Roberto Firmino has claimed that he is set to commit his long-term future to Liverpool after revealing himself “very happy” with life at Anfield.
The 26-year-old, now away on international duty with Brazil, has scored 27 goals in 101 games in all tournaments since signing from Hoffenheim in 2015.
Firmino racked up his milestone 100th games for the Reds in the 1-1 draw with CSKA Moscow earlier this term and, with talk of a new contract being imminent, the striker is now aiming another century in a Liverpool Jersey.
“It’s great for me. Ever since I received the proposal to come to Liverpool, I’ve been very happy, I never thought twice about coming to Liverpool. I am very happy here at Liverpool, it’s a very good club, at a very high level, a big club. I enjoy playing here, and I am pretty happy to have recently reached my 100th game.
“I hope I can get another 100 games for Liverpool and to achieve a lot of good things; to win as many trophies as possible and achieve success. I am pretty content because I am a person who demands a lot of himself; I always want more and nothing is ever ‘perfect’ for me. It’s great, but it could be better. That’s always my kind of thinking – to keep wanting more.” – he told the club’s official website.
Firmino has played in 11 games for Liverpool so far this season, most earlier coming on as a replacement in the 1-1 draw against Newcastle United.
