Frank Lampard raves about ‘incredible’ Liverpool FC star
Frank Lampard was particularly impressed by Roberto Firmino's performance for Liverpool FC against FC Porto
Frank Lampard heaped praise on Roberto Firmino for an “incredible” performance for Liverpool FC during their 5-0 thrashing of FC Porto last week.
The Brazilian attacker was in fine form for Jurgen Klopp’s men as they secured a dominant victory in the first leg of their last 16 clash to all but book their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Firmino netted for the Reds, along with Sadio Mane’s hat-trick and Mohamed Salah’s strike in a brilliant victory for the Merseyside outfit.
The attacking trio have been earning plenty of praise for their fine displays for the Reds this season and their fine form has not gone unnoticed by Chelsea FC legend Lampard.
And the former England midfielder was particularly impressed by Firmino’s contribution for the Reds during their dominant Champions League win.
Speaking to BT Sport, Lampard said: “They [Firmino, Salah and Mane] work off each other. We seem to speak about them every time they play.
“The great thing for Liverpool is that they were solid behind them against Porto as well. The moment they win the ball back, all three of them are on the offensive again.
“They link up together, they have one intention – to get behind the other team.
“They don’t waste time in attacking. I think Firmino, his all-round play [against Porto] was incredible.”
Liverpool FC are now not back in action until their Premier League clash against West Ham United at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
Klopp’s side are currently in third place in the Premier League table as they bid to finish in the top four for the second season running under the German manager.
Liverpool FC will take on FC Porto in the return leg at Anfield next month.
