Roberto Firmino has revealed why he decided to sign for Liverpool this summer.
The Brazilian playmaker was widely expected to join Manchester United but shocked everyone when he chose Anfield over Old Trafford.
And he has admitted Philippe Coutinho and the history of the club played a big part in his decision.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, Firmino said: “As a football fan, I’ve been watching the Premier League for a while now.
“Liverpool was my choice because of its history and its team, and also because Coutinho told me some great things about the club.
“I hope I can bring joy to the people playing for this club.”
