Firmino spoke about the difficulties on the path of a football player’s career

It wasn’t easy for the Brazilian to become a big player.

Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino spoke about his difficult childhood. The future footballer had to work and help his family, but he was always drawn to play football. After moving to Germany, Firmino often thought about returning to his native Brazil.

“Yes, I am from a humble family. My father was a street vendor selling mineral water, soda and beer. When I succeeded, I helped him. During the holidays and concerts there was a special demand. I also did all sorts of things around the house, although, of course, I wanted to play with the ball more. My parents were always angry if I didn’t help them, but I was drawn to football.

I left home early. I was 15 then. I haven’t seen my relatives for a year – it’s not easy at that age. At the age of 18, I left for Germany – in general, another country with an unusual culture, with a colder climate. It’s hard to resist the urge to return home. At such moments, I had to overcome myself, believe in my business and continue to grow every day “, – Firmino told the Russian press.


Liverpool will play against Newcastle tonight. The match starts at 14:30 Moscow time.
