With the UEFA Champions League final fast approaching, Firmino faces a test against time to recover and play a part in the final.
Injured for the past month and missing the second leg against Barcelona, The fans may finally have something to cheer about as far as Bobby is concerned after Jurgen Klopp admitted that things are “looking good”.
Preparation for the big game
Ahead of the biggest game of their season, Liverpool are back in Melwood for their preparation.
Part of their training camp in Marbella, Spain was a practice match against Benfica B. The Reds won the game 3-0 at the Marbella complex but whether or not Firmino played a part is unknown as it was behind closed doors.
Fit or not, it was clear to see that the Brazilian hasn’t lost any of his touch as showed no mercy before nutmegging a Liverpool staff member while training yesterday.
Some fans believe that he is ready for the game and the “injury” is just mind games:
Mind games… He’s actually fully fit and raring to go :)— Jadon (@jadonc2304)
Some fans joked the staff member was a Barcelona defender:
Oh look, Barcelona’s defence— David Leaney (@DavidLeaney)
The fans will hope Firmino is fit enough to start the final. There’s no doubt that his presence is very crucial to the squad.
Firmino who is known for his pressing abilities even though him being a striker is the kind of tactical edge and difference that Liverpool possess that not many teams can boast.
Here’s hoping Bobby gets fit in time for the final!
