Firmino piles on the PDA with wife Larissa as Liverpool star makes Kiev vow
Roberto Firmino is preparing for the Champions League final by soaking up the sun in Ibiza, as he revealed he’s desperate to crown his best ever season by winning the tournament.
Firmino has been sensational for Liverpool in 2017/18 and has contributed a career-best 27 goals and 17 assists during the campaign.
But the “restless” Samba star wants more and has set his sights on beating Real Madrid in Kiev in the final on May 26 to lift the Champions League.
“This year is my best year as a professional footballer, but I am still a little bit restless as I always want more, to grow and grow even further,” said Firmino.
“It would be a unique moment to win. It’s a very special trophy.
“If we’re fortunate enough to be able to win it, it will be a very emotional moment for me and the whole team.”
The Brazilian star was spotted getting up close and personal with wife Larissa Pereira and friends off the coast of Ibiza, where he’s recharging his batteries ahead of Liverpool’s pre-Champions League final training camp in Ibiza.
The forward, 26, has scored 10 goals during Liverpool’s march to Kiev – a feat only bettered by Cristiano Ronaldo this season – and made eight assists.
He says he is “very, very” satisfied by how his first Champions League campaign has gone and wants to try and better it next season.
“I am a little bit annoyed, because I always want more and I am never satisfied,” he said.
“However, you cannot beat yourself up about these things all the time and you must always keep moving forward.
“It is my first season in the Champions League and I am one of the leading scorers, alongside Cristiano and Salah.
“I’m pretty pleased and very happy with my performance, and the entire team’s performance. I hope to keep that going into the final.”
Firmino is relishing playing against Real for the first time and says the Reds are undaunted by their great European pedigree.
“We know about Real Madrid,” he said. “They are always winning titles in the Champions League and in the Spanish league too.
“This is a final and a one-off game. They’ll also be up against, in Liverpool, a team and a club with a great pedigree. We are going to fight until the end.”
