Sadio Mane is exasperated with the consistent criticism Roberto Firmino is currently receiving despite effortless displays.
Firmino’s is a hardwiring striker who tries to close down defenders while finding spaces for the wing forwards to attack and score. He is selfless attitude remains the reason why Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah has scored so many goals.
Mane thanks him for that and want people to see the effort Firmino puts in the team’s overall display not only on the goals he is expected to score.
But sadly, Liverpool aren’t doing so well in the Premier League and everyone now needs Firmino to score goals not try to provide assist.
According to SportBild, Liverpool are plotting an audacious bid to sign RB Liepzig star Ibrahima Konate and Sevilla’s highly rated winger Luca Ocampos.
The Reds are aiming to trigger the defenders €40m release clause and Ocampos €65m release clause this summer. Liverpool will revamp the squad this summer by selling off dead woods while bringing in super talented players like Konate and Ocampos.
Liverpool are reportedly planning for the possibility of missing out of Europe’s elite competition. The Reds will not win this season Premier League title neither will they win the FA Cup or the Caraboa Cup having been dumped out of both competitions.
Top four now looks very unlikely due to their current form, mounting injuries and Chelsea’s upsurge in form. If Liverpool don’t finish in the top 4 this season, Jurgen Klopp and the management will gladly take the Europa League.
It might hurt the clubs brand but the team is not just good enough for top 4 football.
