Liverpool FC summer signing Roberto Firmino wants Champions League and silverware

Published on

Roberto Firmino has said he joined Liverpool in order to challenge for trophies and compete in the Champions League.

Liverpool missed out on a spot in Europe’s top competition this season but Firmino, who joined the club from Hoffenheim in a £29million summer switch, is desperate to challenge for titles and test himself against Europe’s best after moving to Anfield.

“It’s strange but I remember just before I moved to Hoffenheim that I had a dream about playing in England,” he told the Liverpool FC’s official magazine.

“At the time that wasn’t an option, the opportunity wasn’t there for me. Then it came along a few months ago and I quickly decided it was the right offer for me.

“As a footballer, I always want more. I really enjoyed my time in Germany but didn’t actually win anything. So the next step was to join a club that can compete for trophies, that’s why I came here.

“I want to fight for titles and play in the Champions League. So moving here really is a dream come true.”
