News that Bobby Firmino was omitted from Tite’s Brazilian World Cup squad will have come as news to Liverpool fans’ ears amid a host of injuries within the squad.
However, from the player’s perspective, it’s not one that makes a massive amount of sense given the superb form he’s enjoyed this season compared to some of his compatriots in the English top-flight.
We respect it’s a difficult decision, though, given it’s likely to be the former Hoffenheim star’s final shot at appearing in the competition, it’s heartbreaking that his start to the 2022/23 campaign hasn’t influenced the manager’s mind on the matter.
