Roberto Firmino pulls off impressive skill against Wolves

Published 5 Comments

As well as scoring in Liverpool's behind-closed-doors friendly win over Wolves on Friday afternoon, Roberto Firmino also pulled off a neat piece of skill.

The Brazil international showcased his samba flair against the Championship outfit, combining a Zinedine Zidane-esque turn with a pass to a teammate. (Scroll down this page to see Firmino’s moment of class).

Liverpool fans will be pleased to see Firmino on the scoresheet and attempting fancy tricks. Supporters expected to see such moments of quality from the Brazilian on a consistent basis following his £29 million transfer from Hoffenheim in the summer, but it’s been a slow start to life at Anfield for the 24-year-old.

In fairness to Firmino, though, it has been a stop-start beginning to his Liverpool career.

Used sporadically by Brendan Rodgers at the start of the campaign, the South American then suffered an untimely back injury in September which kept him out of action for a month.

Lovely stuff...

Liverpool need Firmino to start producing the goods

Firmino has been handed opportunities to impress by Klopp and has the backing of the former Borussia Dortmund boss, who believes Rodgers and the transfer committee at Liverpool did well to bring the attacking midfielder to Anfield.

Firmino is still looking to score his first competitive goal for Liverpool but was able to register his first assist for the Reds during last month’s 3-1 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Today’s performance against Wolves should give him some much-needed confidence ahead of the trip to Manchester City after the international break.

A confident Roberto Firmino will undoubtedly be a major asset for Liverpool.
