Roberto Firmino understands the obligation to fight for trophies at Liverpool.
Now in his fourth season at Anfield, the Brazilian has been a runner-up in the League Cup, Europa League and Champions League with the Reds.
This term, Firmino and co have ambitions on two pieces of silverware; Jürgen Klopp’s side currently lead the Premier League and their European Cup quarter-final against FC Porto 2-0.
Being competitive at the end of a campaign is a necessity for the club, says Firmino, and the players will be giving everything to secure the success they’re aiming for.
“At a club like Liverpool, the goal is always to win and fight for titles when you’re wearing the shirt,” the No.9, a goalscorer in the tie with Porto on Tuesday, told Sky Sports.
“With the support of this club and the tradition, the goal is winning titles and we have an opportunity to fight for two. We’re fighting as hard as we can and let’s see what happens.”
After racking up 91 goals in 2017-18, the front three of Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have totalled 56 so far this season.
“This all comes with day after day of work – working together each day,” said Firmino, when asked to explain the chemistry between the forwards.
“We’ve been together now almost three years, we are only growing every day. In training sessions and games we already know each other perfectly and I hope it can keep going in this way.”
