Roberto Firmino was overwhelmed with emotion as he took in Anfield for the final time as a Liverpool player, an experience he was “grateful” for. Despite not signing off with a victory, Firmino was still given a guard of honour and serenaded by the Kop. He told ESPN Brasil that it was “impossible” to hold back his tears. “It’s very emotional, it’s been eight years at the club, a lot of history, a beautiful story. The support from the fans is incredible. I love the fans. They’ve always supported me, they’ve given me the support I’d like, I’m grateful to everyone for the music they’ve created, it’s very moving.”
Firmino expressed his gratitude for his eight years at Liverpool, saying “I thank my teammates, family and coach for helping me a lot.” He was left with a deep sense of gratitude for his time at the club and for the legacy he and his teammates had built together. With just one last game left for Firmino, he reflected on how quickly the time had gone.
