Kuyt impressed by Firmino


Former Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt has praised “special” Roberto Firmino.

The ex-Holland international singled out the Brazilian after being impressed by his workrate and all-round game.

“He has his own style and that makes him special. That’s what I like in players.” he told Liverpoolfc.com

“A typical goalscorer or different kind of striker? You see that a lot in Europe, but Firmino has his own style and he has his own speciality; he is scoring great goals but also feeding the players around him.

“He’s a great goalscorer but he’s also a team player in everything he does.

“I don’t know him quite well, but if I see him playing he just wants to win with the team and he’s not the type of player who wants to score for himself.

“That, for me, is the biggest thing about Firmino, he’s scoring great goals but he’s also giving great assists and then you are, in my eyes, a complete player, a great thing for Liverpool.

“I think he’s also a very hard worker, he’s selfless.

“I watch almost all the games and I see then he’s always giving his all.

“Sometimes he’s not scoring goals or giving assists, but he is always giving his all.” he finished.

Kuyt hung up his boots a year ago when he helped Feyenoord to the Dutch title.
