Jamie Carragher believes it will be “better for all parties” for Roberto Firmino if he leaves Liverpool at the end of the season.
Sky Germany on Friday reported that longtime Brazil striker Firmino has decided to leave when his contract expires on June 30.
The 31-year-old has been hugely popular at Anfield, having scored 107 goals and provided 70 assists in 353 games for the Reds since his move from Hoffenheim in 2015.
Firmino helped Liverpool make significant additions to their treasury during his time at Merseyside, winning the Champions League, the Premier League, the FA Cup, the EFL Cup, the Club World Cup and the UEFA Super Cup.
Combined with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in such a formidable attacking trio, Firmino’s ability to create and score goals has allowed Jurgen Klopp’s team to become a formidable force.
However, he has struggled with injuries last season and this campaign and former Liverpool defender Carragher believes it’s time for the next chapter in his career.
“If reports of Firmino leaving at the end of the season are correct, I think it’s best for all parties,” Carragher tweeted.
“He is a great Liverpool player and will be remembered for being part of one of the best three strikers we have ever seen.”
