‘Klopp Would Take Firmino Over Harry Kane’ Says Jamie Carragher

 

Liverpool legend and Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher says that Roberto Firmino is one of
the most underrated players in the Premier League and believes that manager Jurgen Klopp
would prefer to have him in his team than Harry Kane.
Kane is considered one of the world’s foremost strikers, but Carragher thinks that Firmino fits
Liverpool’s system perfectly and brings more goals out of his colleagues as a result. “Firmino
has been a revelation this season,” Carragher purred.
“I actually think he is one of the most underrated players in the Premier League. He has
always been Liverpool’s number one striker but what he has been adding is the goals. He
can actually match up to the other strikers now goals-wise and still bring all the other stuff
that he brings.
“Without a doubt, Firmino is helping Salah too. He is very clever with his passing and his
movement drags people out of position as well. He comes towards the ball and that opens
up the space for Salah to make that penetrating diagonal run in behind that space between
the full-back and the centre-back. It is a great combination for Liverpool.
“That’s why, even without the goals, I don’t think Klopp would ever look to replace Firmino. If
Harry Kane gets 40 goals and Firmino gets 20, he would still be one of – if not the first –
name on the team sheet because of what he does off the ball. Klopp appreciates all of the
extra things that Firmino brings to this Liverpool team that nobody else can.”
