Firmino Earns Rave Reviews from Teammates
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson paid tribute to Roberto Firmino after another selfless display saw him set up two goals in the Reds’ 4-0 win over Southampton on Saturday.
The win puts Liverpool 22 points clear at the top of the Premier League and though he didn’t score, the Brazilian earned the plaudits of his teammates.
“Some of the stuff he does is madness really,” Henderson said. “But he's another outstanding player for us and it was another big performance from him.
“Especially in the second half, everyone put in a really good performance. We're just really delighted to get the three points, especially going into the break now.”
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was equally effusive about Firmino, “It becomes a little bit normal when you play with that guy,” the former Arsenal man said.
"That's the way he plays and he does those magnificent things all the time. I love him, I absolutely love him. He's such a joy to play with and to feed off.
“He's always looking for others, he works for the team and his skills speak for themselves. He's a top man and we all love him.”
