Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool landed in Marbella, Spain for a six-day training prior to the Champions League final. Liverpool are going up against their national rivals,Tottenham Hotspur in a final which would be held in Madrid on 2nd June.
Liverpool squad including their German manager arrived in their official club sponsored sportswear. But Mané & Firmino chose to stand out.
Bobby & Sadio
In fact, the Brazilian star, Roberto Firmino landed in Marbella ahead of the squad in a bid to overcome his thigh problem before the final.
He opted for an all white Gucci t-shirt & torn cargo shorts coupled with slippers. Firmino, lovingly called Bobby, concocted a perfect summer ensemble for his weekend at Marbella.
To add to his footballer look he also sported a white cap as well as a funky backpack. His revealed tattoos only added to his absolute baller getup.
Senegal man Sadio Mané surprised everyone by selecting an all black attire in the hot weather of Spain.
His full sleeved t-shirt & shorts have stylized linings with black & white knits giving the otherwise casual attire an air of swagger.
The club & its supporters have a lot of expectations from these two men & a bucket full of stakes are riding on them.
It should be noted that a footballer arriving in style is never an indication of a laid-back attitude. Instead they have always come to signify that the player is ready to take on any challenging situation.
So Liverpool fans should feel more optimistic as their favorites are gearing up to fight off their opponents.
But then what about Spurs? Well… beware. Since the Reds are in no way going to let the silver trophy get out of their hands again.

Alexander-Arnold, Alisson, Brewster, Fabinho, Firmino, Gomez, Henderson, Jones, Keita, Kelleher, Lallana, Lovren, Mane, Matip. Mignolet, Milner, Moreno, Origi, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Robertson, Salah, Shaqiri, Sturridge, Van Dijk, Wijnaldum, Woodburn.
