Roberto Firmino is slow in both mind and body said the Liverpool Echo’s Ian Doyle Firmino’s performance against Burnley.
Liverpool won the fixture 1-0. However, Firmino struggled against the Burbley.
Only one shot on goal was registered by the forward. As a result, Doyle was scathing of Firmino following the match.
Firmino might be finished at the top level, according to the journalist.
As quoted by Anfield Edition’s Twitter account, Doyle told the Liverpool Echo the following: “Roberto Firmino, though, won’t want to see much replay of a frustrating performance, too often slow in both mind and body.”
Roberto Firmino verdict
Over the years, Roberto Firmino has been a fantastic performer for Liverpool. In 315 games for the club’s first squad, the forward has 94 goals and 73 assists to his name.
With the Reds, he has also won the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, and Premier League.
In terms of this season, we believe Firmino hasn’t performed admirably for Liverpool.
In 23 games, the Brazil international has scored seven goals and provided four assists.
Firmino has a WhoScored player rating of 6.87 on average. However, he is showing signs of improvement.
The striker is 30 years old, therefore he isn’t as sharp as he once was, as Doyle pointed out.
Despite this, Firmino has made a positive impact this season. His contract at Liverpool expires in June 2023, therefore the Brazil international’s long-term future remains uncertain.
It is also in doubt if Roberto Firmino will be offered a contract extension due to his age.
Jurgen Klopp has a variety of attacking options at his disposal (Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota, and Luis Diaz).
