On This Day in 2015: Roberto Firmino became a Red for £29m – Which was his best moment?

Si Senor…

On this day in 2015, Roberto Firmino became a Liverpool player signing from Hoffenheim in a deal worth £29m.

The player has gone on to become a fan favourite in his time at Anfield, scoring some hugely important goals and has been a vital figure in the Liverpool machine.

He also joined forces with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah to create one of the best-attacking trios in Premier League history.

Here are some of his best moments across the years…

Scoring 98 goals and creating 67 assists in 327 games, Firmino has been an incredible servant for Liverpool.

It’s even hard to look past the fact he may be the best Brazilian to have played in the Premier League ahead of even former Red, Philippe Coutinho.

He’s managed to help the Reds win the Premier League, Super Cup, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, UEFA Champions League and the Club World Cup during his time here.

He also loves a goal against Arsenal…

World Class Link-Up

Many believe he has been the glue that has linked together their brilliantly destructive attack over the years.

The pace and power of Mane and Salah were complimented perfectly by the Brazilian.

He was the unselfish one, the focal point who would often be the provider thanks to his deft touch and vision.

Here’s a fairly prime example…

PSG Heroics

No doubt one of his finest moments came on the biggest stage in the UEFA Champions League.

With Liverpool surrendering a two-goal lead, Firmino was brought on at 2-1 down.

After faking a shot on his left foot, he cut back onto his favoured right to fire a brilliant low strike to give Liverpool the win in added time.

A famous goal with perhaps a more famous celebration.

Club World Cup winner

Liverpool had never triumphed in the FIFA Club World Cup until 2019.

Winning the Champions League in the 2018/19 season saw them qualify for the tournament.

Firmino secured one of his best moments by scoring a late winner in extra time to eventually down Flamengo.

His poise, class and composure were all on show here as he secured the Club World Cup.

Manchester City moments

With Liverpool and Manchester City battling it out in recent years for major honours, Firmino hasn’t shied away from the big games.

In a famous 4-3 win over the Citizens back in 2017, it was a game that felt like the start of something great.

Firmino got the ball rolling with this delightful chip – comparable to a goal scored by Robbie Fowler in the 90s.

Shrugging off John Stones before delicately chipping past Ederson is most certainly a Firmino classic for the ages…

His best strike?

While he has a collection of fine goals, this may be the best.

It wasn’t a big game or a decisive moment in the grand scheme of the season, but it may be his best strike.

He ticked off a goal away at Stoke with this brilliant half volley from distance.

Another example of how technically good the Brazilian is.
