Former footballer Kaka has been full of admiration for Liverpool’s Brazilian players.

The Reds possess some of the best footballers in the world. The Brazilian trio of Roberto Firmino, Alisson and Fabinho have contributed to that being the case.

Liverpool have claimed the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup within the past seven months.

The Reds also possess a 22-point lead at the top of the Premier League table, meaning it is likely that Liverpool will claim a maiden Premier League title come the end of the season.

However, none of this would have been possible if it weren’t for players such as Firmino, Alisson and Fabinho.

Kaka, who is Brazilian himself, has made that clear in a recent interview. He also stated that Firmino is arguably one of the best strikers in the world.

Kaka said, as quoted by Sky Sports News: “Alisson is the best goalkeeper in the world right now, Fabinho is one of the best midfielders, and Firmino and [Luis] Suarez are the best strikers in the world.

“Firmino understands his place on the field and changes his position. He doesn’t stay in the box the whole time, he comes and gets the ball and creates the plays.

“For me, as a Brazilian, it’s really good to see them having this great success in the Premier League.”

When Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are talked about in the future, the Brazilian trio will always be mentioned. The impact they have had on this Liverpool side has been enormous.

The comment Kaka made regarding Firmino is arguably spot on. Firmino is now one of the best strikers in the world, which shows just how good of a player he has become under Klopp.
