Roberto Firmino confirms new Liverpool deal with trademark 'no-look' celebration

Roberto Firmino has agreed a new long-term contract with Liverpool.

The current campaign has been his best yet for the Merseyside club, with 27 goals in 50 fixtures.

Klopp noted in November that the forward "looks like the engine of the team", and that is a moniker Firmino gracefully accepts.

"It was an easy decision", he told the club's website.

'I love playing for Liverpool FC.

Liverpool fans will be hoping he celebrates his new deal with a goal at the Stadio Olimpico as they aim to cement a spot in the Final of the Champions League on Wednesday night. "They always greet me in the street and I feel very well here".

Firmino's hard working nature mixed with superb technical ability has seen him become the flawless striker for Jurgen Klopp's system, allowing the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane to profit either side of him whilst still contributing in the goals department himself.

Firmino has combined with PFA Player of the Year Mo Salah and winger Sadio Mane to form an extremely impressive attacking trio that has led the Reds to a top four slot and the brink of a Champions League final berth.

Liverpool shared a video of the 26-year-old signing his new contract.

"They are excellent footballers with a lot of quality and I am grateful to play beside them. They support us throughout the games and the work they do during the match is beautiful", Firmino added.

Liverpool have not disclosed the length of Firmino's contract but multiple media outlets have claimed that the forward has committed to the Anfield club until 2023.
