After tasting victory with Brazil at the Copa América, Roberto Firmino’s stellar performances for the hosts has got the Reds fans’ tongues wagging.
Two goals and three assists for A Seleção made Bobby his side’s highest-ranked player for goal involvements at the tournament. That, together with the relentless harrying and tireless work rate we’ve come to know and love at Liverpool, made him one of trophy-winning Brazil’s best performers.
On Twitter, Reds fans lauded his qualities for Tite’s team and acknowledged the fact that, in the space of five weeks, Bobby has now added his first pieces of silverware to his CV.
An incredible fact considering how impressive and unique he is as a forward.
Having won the Champions League with four goals and an assist on the way to Madrid, plus a further 12 goals and seven assists in the Premier League as the Reds achieved a remarkable 97-point top-flight finish, Bobby has been showered in praise for what he’s done for the club this season.
For all these reasons and more, Reds fans have been quick to show their adulation and appreciation for Firmino’s exploits this summer and over the season as a whole.
Champions League glory with Liverpool and Copa America triumph with Brazil whilst having most goal involvements in the tournament.

That is absolutely vintage Bobby Firmino
Chasing back at a defender, slide tackling and robbing the ball off him to set up a goal
Unique type of striker

What Firmino brings to his team can’t always be explained in numbers. That tackle to win the ball back leading to the goal for Jesus is just another example of it. Top top player.#BRAxPER #CopaAmerica

I’m so happy for Firmino, he had never won a trophy in his entire career and in less than 2 months has won the UCL for Liverpool and the Copa America for Brazil.
Well deserved Si Senor. 👏
