When is Roberto Firmino coming back from injury?


After his recent World Cup loss, Roberto Firmino has revealed to talkSPORT that he intends to return for Liverpool more motivated than before.

Although Firmino had previously been a regular under manager Tite and had a fantastic start to the season for his club, he was not selected for Brazil’s squad for Qatar.

With seven goals and three assists in the Premier League to start the season, the forward established himself as the Reds’ leading scorer in the league.

Even though Liverpool is back in action and he has now sustained an injury, he still intends to continue his outstanding season and lead Jurgen Klopp’s team to victory for the duration of the year.

I’m already healed, thank God, he declared in a statement to talkSPORT. I’ll most likely work out on Thursday.

If all goes well, I’ll be prepared not for the up coming game against Leicester but for the one after that against Brentford. All good, then.

Individually speaking, I started the season extremely well, but we as a team did not, therefore we are improving, said Firmino.

“We’re back and in shape now because of the effort we’re doing and our never-give-up spirit,” the team said.

Firmino was away from the team and unable to assist his colleagues as Brazil suffered an early World Cup departure in the quarterfinals.

But any worries that losing out on the event would have diminished his enthusiasm have been allayed, as the 31-year-old is driven to continue his winning streak.

“Of course it was disappointing that I wasn’t selected for the World Cup, but as I’ve stated before, that’s part of God’s plan, and I am following God’s plan,” the speaker said.

“Not having gone to the World Cup actually motivates me more and more, so I’ll work hard to get back into the Selecao.”

Firmino missed Liverpool’s first two games after the break, during which they lost to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup and then defeated Aston Villa in the league.

Spanish teenager Stefan Bajcetic, 18, scored his first goal for the team in that game, while fellow academy alumnus Ben Doak also shone.

Firmino has forecast big futures for players like Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho and is clearly enjoying his role as a seasoned player assisting the club’s rising talents.

It’s a real pleasure to play with the younger players, he said. They are a huge help to us.

They become vital members of our squad when they come up to train with us. We help them, and they help us.

“As you witnessed throughout the game, they are incredibly talented and full of promise. They will undoubtedly develop into great players in the future.”
