Klopp comments on Firmino’s decision to quit Anfield

Roberto Firmino

Jürgen Klopp has broken his silence over Roberto Firmino’s decision to leave the club at the end of the season.

The 31-year-old informed the club last week that he was ready for a new challenge next season despite previous suggestions that he was willing to ink an extension. The news disappointed many supporters as Firmino has proven himself to be a huge fan favourite since joining Liverpool in 2015 from Bundesliga outfit 1899 Hoffenheim.

Firmino scored Liverpool’s 7th goal in the 7-0 mauling of visitors Manchester United yesterday and that obviously delighted the boss, especially after all the chatter surrounding Firmino’s decision.

Speaking after the game, Klopp said: “Bobby tonight was the most special moment.

“It was not an easy decision for him [to decide to quit the club]. The reception he got was absolutely outstanding.

“With all the wonderful goals he scored, that’s the goal he pretty much wanted the most.”
