Ian Rush Praise for ‘Rare’ Firmino
Liverpool legend Ian Rush reserved praise for the ‘rare’ talents of Roberto Firmino and believes the Brazilian is the player that the Reds rely on most.
Mohammed Salah has struck 37 goals so far this season from the wing, but Liverpool’s record goalscorer and legendary number 9 thinks the current number 9 is the glue that holds the attack together.
“Everyone knows how amazing Mohamed Salah is but if you're looking at one player Liverpool rely on it's Bobby Firmino," Rush told Sky Sports News.
“With his closing down he reminds me a little bit of myself. Not only does he work hard for the team, he's also very skilful - he does everything.
"He may not be regularly getting 30 goals a season but he makes the opposition make mistakes. He is a rare breed of a Brazilian and I think his talents suit the Premier League down to a T.
"He is tireless, every manager would love a player like that in his team. We are very, very lucky that we have him in our side.”
