Roberto Firmino has explained that Liverpool’s attacking partnership with Salah, Mane and himself is the product of hard work behind the scenes.
Liverpool’s Brazilian forward Roberto Firmino has broken down the details of how him and his attacking teammates Salah and Mane have formed such a telepathic relationship on the pitch, putting it down to hard work.
When it was suggested that the understanding between the trio has improved, the 27 year old said “It’s not just the understanding with Sadio and Mo Salah – it’s with the entire team. We’re in a great place at the moment. We’re maintaining this high level in the big games, and we need to carry on like this. I hope we can sustain it.”
“As I said before, the development has to be constant, the Premier League is very demanding, so your focus has to be 100 per cent and you have to work as hard as possible. You have to be consistent, which is the result of the hard work you put in working towards victories. It’s about effort, hard work day in, day out and the way we organise ourselves in training. That’s what it is.”
Firmino then spoke about Salah winning African player of the year, adding “I saw it on the internet! I would like to congratulate him on winning the African Player of the Year award for the second consecutive year. And yes, I saw that they tried to make him dance. He tried, but I don’t think it’s his forte!”
Liverpool’s next game is away at Brighton on Saturday 12th of January.
