Roberto Firmino charged with drink driving in Liverpool
Brazilian attacker Roberto Firmino was spotted driving drunk in Liverpool, England, in the early hours of December 24, and will have to respond to the court for the guilt.
Police in Merseyside County, who took the case, confirmed that a 25-year-old man was taken to the police station for drunken driving. An official told British newspaper Liverpool Echo: "Merseyside police have caught a 25-year-old man driving drunk after his car is stopped in central Liverpool, on the night of December 24. Liverpool's Roberto Firmino will attend the Liverpool Court on January 31."
Liverpool will not talk about the case, but the player will have to appear before a court in January to provide clarification on the case on the same day that Liverpool hosts Chelsea in the Premier League, on 31 January. Firmino also did not comment on the case, and the last post of the player on his Instagram was precisely on Christmas night, when he wished his friend Bruno Henrique on his birthday.
Roberto Firmino arrived at Liverpool in 2015 for £29 million and has stood out in the team. The striker has also been called up to the Brazilian national side.
