During his days at Anfield, he scored a total of 111 goals and provided 79 assists. He was part of the front three that defined an era, and his combinations with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah left opposing defenders shaking in their boots.
After eight years with the club, Firmino has decided to move to Saudi Arabia, where a number of star players have decided to move on.
