Serie A star makes Roberto Firmino statement Liverpool fans will love

Atalanta striker Luis Muriel says Roberto Firmino is the best forward in the world right now. 

Despite not scoring as much as Harry Kane, Robert Lewandowski, Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, Firmino is still among the best forwards due to his massive contribution to Liverpool’s latest successes. 

“You are expecting me to name a player who scores 40 times every season.” Muriel told Corriere Dello Sport (via LiverpoolECHO)

“I have a different idea and say Firmino because of his huge quality and because it’s not just about smashing them in.

“He will send you through on goal with a flick, and for me that is worth more.”

Liverpool will face Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield Road.
