Alexander Arnold Hails ‘Special’ Firmino

 

Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander Arnold has hailed teammate Roberto Firmino as “special” and
suggests that the player doesn’t get the credit he deserves. The Brazilian was on the scoresheet
again on Saturday, during the Reds’ 3-1 win over West Ham at Anfield.
Speaking with Liverpool’s official website, Alexander-Arnold beamed, “He's a very special player. I
think he's definitely underrated in terms of the recognition that he gets. I think he links the whole
team together. He links the front three together, especially.
“He always plays a part. If you watch him closely, his drive and enthusiasm to get back and defend as
a No.9 is incredible. Most of the time you see him past the halfway line, tracking back and making
tackles. Sometimes he overdoes it, but in a good way.
“I suppose he doesn't have to do it, but he's willing to do it for the team.” Firmino now has 13 league
goals this season, but Alexander-Arnold says he is more than just a goalscorer. “You don't really see
that from an all-round No.9.
“It just shows his hunger to win. I think that's a big part of it. He is priceless to us. He scores goals, he
creates chances and he gets assists. There's not much more you want from a No.9. He wants to win,
he's a born winner.
“I think that's very important if you want to make it in this game. You've got to have that drive to
win. He's got a lot of that. “We've got a really good attack and everyone is in fine form. Hopefully
there's no stopping of the goals.”
