Liverpool have an absolutely star studded line-up at the moment. Ask football fans, who the best player at Liverpool is and usually the answer is likely to be Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane with possibly Virgil van Djik or Naby Keita thrown in the mix more recently.
However ask the same question to professional footballers and a surprising number of people are likely to answer with ‘Roberto Firmino’. This is because the Brazilian striker is admired for his selfless running off the ball, his intelligent movement as well as his smart hold-up play.
One such admirer it turns out is Atletico Madrid superstar one of the hottest strikers in world football right now, Antoine Griezmann. The 27-year-old French international has expressed his admiration for the Liverpool striker on social media in the past. Now, it has become apparent that Griezmann absolutely loves Firmino because he has put up another Instagram post expressing his happiness at getting a signed shirt from the Brazilian.
The fact that a player of Griezmann’s caliber admires the Liverpool striker as much as he does is proof that Firmino is still an underrated player. However, if he continues his form and guides the Reds to the Premier League title this season, you can bet he will finally get the recognition he deserves.
