Firmino had been ruled out of the Reds’ last three games but now looks set to return for the biggest game of their season
After the heartbreak of missing out on the Premier League title, Liverpool can achieve redemption by lifting the holy grail of the Champions League this weekend. And if the Reds needed any more of a boost before the showpiece finale, then the news from Jurgen Klopp via Sky Sports that Roberto Firmino is fit and ready to be included in the match-day squad, will be hugely welcomed.
With Klopp having to make do with Divock Origi up front for the miraculous second leg turnaround against Barcelona, having his first-choice number nine back in contention will only add to his side’s firepower. And upon hearing the news, Reds fans flooded to social media to hail the injury update on the Brazilian, and insisted that the 27-year-old could now fire the side to European glory.
Despite his lack of match fitness, some urged Klopp to start Firmino ahead of Origi on Saturday, and backed the former Hoffenheim star to deliver against Spurs once more.
Check out the reaction of Liverpool fans to the news Firmino has been passed fit for the Champions League final below:
