And Firmino, who has developed a reputation for the ‘no look finish’, signed the deal in the best way possible:

His wage increase, which previously stood at £120,000-a-week, means Firmino will pocket a staggering £46.8million over the duration of his new deal.

Speaking to Liverpool’s official website, he said: “It was an easy decision.

“The club have taken me in in an incredible way and I’ve grown a lot here with my work with the support of the whole team. I am very, very happy here.

“Everything fits in the best possible way. My teammates are fantastic and I am very grateful to be able to play with them at this club.
