The South American striker will leave the club by the end of the season, which prompted a huge tribute from fans at Anfield in his final home game.

It was an emotional day for Liverpool supporters and for Roberto Firmino, who will put an end to his stay with the Premier League club next Sunday. But even if he is leaving the club after eight seasons, he found a way to conclude his career with the Reds in proper fashion.

The striker scored his last game at Anfield to keep the team's hopes for Champions League football alive, although Liverpool would need Manchester United to lose their final games combined with a win for the Reds in their final fixture. His last goal in front of his supporters came in stoppage time, which was even more relevant to the Reds' purposes. 

In what seems as the perfect closure for Firmino's career at Anfield, his goal was set up with an assist by Mohamed Salah. Curiously, it was Firmino who assisted Salah for the Egyptian's first goal with the Reds. Call it fate or a coincidence, but their partnership will never be forgotten by football enthusiasts.

Once the game came to an end, Firmino was spotted in tears bidding farewell to the stadium while some of his teammates showed their support by hugging him.

Then, the footballer was called back to the pitch, where Aston Villa and Liverpool players had prepared a guard of honor in his final match at Anfield, while fans sang his signature song.

The player has been linked to several European clubs once his contract with Liverpool runs out. Atlético Madrid, Inter Milan, Barcelona, and Roma have reportedly shown interest in his services, while the MLS expansion team St Louis City has also shown interest in his services , even offering him a Designated Player spot to see him joining the league.
