The Brazilian footballer has already stated his desire to part ways with the Reds, which has not gone down well with his current coach.

Liverpool's historic trio of Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah, and Roberto Firmino will only be reduced to a one-man show starting next summer, as Mohamed Salah will be the only one remaining with the team by the time Roberto Firmino seals his exit.

The Brazilian ace will put an end to his run with the Reds once his contract expires, and while the club might agree with his choice, Firmino's decision is not something that Jürgen Klopp wanted.

Speaking ahead of Liverpool's match against Bournemouth, Klopp did not hold back on his praises for Firmino, adding that even if his decision caught him off guard, he is sure his legacy will remain untouched among the team's supporters.

"If Firmino's decision surprise me? Yes, a little. But I totally respect him. It is normal in a relationships as long as the one he's had with the team. He is a very special player and I loved to see how the crowd welcomed him against Manchester United. He wants to put an end to his story here with a positive ending, and I'm sure fans will remember his name for quite a while," Klopp stated.

Then, the coach referred to the team's spirit following their 7-0 win over the Red Devils last Sunday, and how that ego boost could help them reach the top four by the end of the season.

"There is nothing better for our morale than a good game. We had seen it in our training sessions, and in the last five games we had been more consistent. Although confidence is fragile like a little flower, we have to make sure we can keep our current form," Klopp added.

Liverpool will take on Bournemouth for the second time this season, a game that ended in a massive 9-0 blowout for the Reds. Visit our preview for this match here.
