Liverpool defeated Napoli with a fantastic team effort, but Roberto Firmino played poorly the entire time.
Roberto Firmino is expected to recover from a muscular issue in time for Saturday’s match against Villa, according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
Because he plans to leave the club this summer, it is rumored that it will be his last Liverpool game. However, a muscle injury has prevented him from playing in his last few games.
Initial predictions stated that the Brazilian attacker would miss three contests. The 31-year-old has been sidelined for the Reds’ last 6 contests, though.
Firmino was serenaded by a chorus of chants from the away end at the King Power Stadium as he watched from the sidelines. At the conclusion of the game, he was later surrounded by his teammates as a show of celebration.
On Saturday afternoon, Liverpool will host Villa in their final home game of the year. Additionally, Klopp anticipates Firmino to rejoin the team for practice on Wednesday, giving him a good chance to say goodbye to Anfield with a game appearance.
“I believe that is true. So, as we make our way home, I have information that Wednesday is team training and that Thursday is a day off for him but not for the others.
Therefore, we must now wait and see because the game on Saturday is extremely challenging for many reasons. It was likely a farewell game for a few players, and in the second half of the season, they played [the] second or third-best team in the Premier League with everything on the line. We’ll have to see because that is very difficult. We need to play aggressively and win the game in the middle of everything.
But in relation to that, we want to express our genuine respect, gratitude, and love for not only Bobby but also Bobby and all the boys who will depart in the summer. Therefore, it will be a memorable day with a challenging game sandwiched between or around whatever. The ability to do both must be ensured. ”.
With a victory over Leicester at King Power, the Reds earned their seventh straight win. Only Newcastle United and Manchester United have more points than they do right now.
All things considered, both Liverpool staff and fans would miss the Brazilian attacker if he left this summer.
