Darren Ambrose, a former Crystal Palace player, has described Roberto Firmino’s departure from Liverpool as the “end of an era.” Firmino, who has been with the club for eight years, will leave on a free transfer at the end of the season. During his time at Liverpool, he helped the team win the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, and Carabao Cup. Ambrose praised Firmino’s partnership with Mohamed Salah and former teammate Sadio Mane, calling them the best front three in Premier League history.
Ambrose also lauded Firmino’s self-sacrifice for the team, stating that he gave up a part of his game to help Mane and Salah. He believes that Firmino was the key to their success and that his departure marks the end of an era at Liverpool. Ambrose considers Firmino a Liverpool legend, having won numerous trophies and scored 107 goals during his time at the club.
Firmino formed a formidable relationship with Mane and Salah, which was considered one of the most dangerous attacking trios in Europe. Ambrose went as far as to say that they were the best front three ever seen in the Premier League. The trio combined for an incredible 338 goals and 139 assists during their time together, with 66% of those assists going to each other.
It remains to be seen where Firmino will end up next season, but at 31 years old, he still has plenty left in the tank. There is bound to be plenty of interest in the Brazil international, who has been a key player for Liverpool over the years. Fans will undoubtedly miss Firmino’s selflessness and contribution to the team, but they can look back on his time at Liverpool with fondness and appreciation for all he has done for the club.
