Bobby Firmino’s Journey Till Now
Firmino began playing football at 17 years ago. He made his first appearance for his club Figueira during the Serie A championship. However, his career started to shoot up after he signed with Hoffenheim in December 2010. He scored his first goal in April 2011 against Eintracht Frankfurt, and it was the only goal of the game.
In 2014, Firmino extended his contract with Hoffenheim for three more years. He ended the 2013/2014 season as the Breakthrough Player of the year after he scored 16 goals.
Liverpool have won 13 premier league matches in a row. During their previous game with Burnley, it was Firmino who made the difference.
Firmino has gained his fame from his run at Liverpool. The player found a home with the club with his fellow players Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah. The trio has increased the prevalence of the club to have won the 2018/2019 Champions League and the Super Cup.
Firmino arrived at the club from Hoffenheim after signing for £29 million in July 2015. He scored his first goal for the club in August against Manchester City. His club won the match 4-1. In 2016, under the supervision of Jurgen Klopp, he finished the season as the clubs top scorer.
During the 2017/ 2018 championship, he switched his shirt number from 11 to 9. This came after Mohamed Salah signed with the club.
The 2019/2020 season has been a good one for the club. During their victory against Arsenal, it was the first game that Firmino did not score a goal or render an assist. Although a goal was not in the stats sheet, it is good to note that he indirectly led to the penalty scored by Mohamed Salah.
The 50th goal by the Brazilian is what has led us to this article. He slid the ball to Sadio Mane, who scored the second goal. When he saw the ball rolling into the opponents’ net, he took the shot. Firmino has beaten the milestone for players such as Coutinho 41, Gabriel Jesus 28 and Juninho Paulista 29.
