Amid the many interviews that Liverpool players have been giving this week ahead of the Champions League final against Real Madrid, striker Roberto Firmino had a word with the Brazilian media.
The 30-year-old held an exclusive chat with TNT Sports, mostly talking about the season he’s just had, the chances of going to the World Cup, and obviously, Saturday’s game.
It turns out that in the last question of the interview, reporter Fred Caldeira pointed out that Firmino’s contract with Liverpool expires next year, and asked the player if any talks are being held for a potential extension.
The Brazilian did not confirm any negotiations, but made his wish of staying at Anfield Road very clear.
“I’m very happy here. I’m grateful to God that I’m here playing for a great club with great players, winning titles. And my will is to stay,” Firmino told TNT Sports.
“My wish is to stay here. I want to be here. I’m happy here. So that’s all I can say, I want to stay.”
With so many rumours going on regarding the future of Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, Liverpool fans can finally get a stronger word from a player who wants to continue at the club.
Since arriving at Liverpool in 2015, the Brazilian had 98 goals and 74 assists in 326 appearances.
