Sadio Mane insists Firmino is one of the best players in the world.

Liverpool winger Sadio Mane believes Roberto Firmino is still an important player for the team and one of the best in the world. Although referred to scoring few goals in the Premier League this season, according to reports from the Liverpool Echo.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have started the season unbeaten and have scored 44 goals in all competitions, with Mohamed Salah leading the charge. The team is on 15 goals, while the Senegal star has scored seven in 13 games, while the Brazil forward has six, having netted a hat-trick against Watford two weeks ago.

“I think part of football is how the fans talk about the players who score goals. But I always say and will say again that without Firmino we wouldn’t be the team we are today.

“In the last five years I have played with him. You’ve seen tons of passes and assists and you’ve also seen him defensively for us. His position between the lines creates a gap that makes it easier for us to play. So I think he’s an incredible person.”

“We already know how great Bobby is and how important it is to us. But maybe after hitting a hat-trick, more people will start talking about him. But of course our team knows he is one of the best players in the world,” Mane said.
