That’s according to a man who displayed similar attributes during his own Anfield career: Dirk Kuyt.

A clever late strike during Saturday’s 3-0 win over AFC Bournemouth took Firmino’s goal tally for the season so far to 25, meaning 2017-18 already represents cheap nfl jerseys from china the most prolific campaign of the Liverpool No.9’s career to date.

His 47 appearances across all competitions this term have also yielded 14 assists, and former Reds forward Kuyt is a huge fan of the Brazilian – particularly his willingness to prioritise collective success over personal glory.

“He has his own style and that makes him special,” the ex-Netherlands international told Liverpoolfc.com.172

“That’s what I like in players. A typical goalscorer or different kind of striker, you see that a lot in Europe, but Firmino has his own style and he has his own speciality; he is scoring great goals but also feeding the players around him.

“He’s a great goalscorer but he’s also a team player in everything he does. I don’t know him quite well, but if I see him playing then he just wants to win with the team and he’s not the type of player who wants to score for himself. That, for me, is the biggest thing of Firmino.

“He’s scoring great goals but he’s also giving great assists and then you are, in my eyes, a complete player who is a great thing for Liverpool.

“I think he’s also a very hard worker, nfl jerseys cheap china he’s selfless and working hard. I watch almost all the games and the games I see then he’s always giving his everything. Sometimes he’s not scoring goals or giving assists, but for one thing he is always giving his everything.”
