This post also contained a link to purchase this shirt from their official club store’s website.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Liverpool fans who were delighted to see the Brazilian wearing one of the Reds’ old home shirts.

Here’s a sample of Liverpool fans responding to the post:

The 28-year-old, who is currently valued at £64.8 million according to Transfermarkt, first signed to the Merseyside club back in 2015 from Hoffenheim for a fee of £36.9 million (per Transfermarkt).

Since then, Firmino has gone on to make 235 appearances for the Reds in which he has managed to score 77 goals and provide 59 assists (per Transfermarkt).

Is Roberto Firmino Liverpool's most important player?





This season has seen Firmino score eight goals and provide seven assists in 29 Premier League appearances that have resulted in him being awarded a season rating of 7.26/10, making him the sixth highest-rated Liverpool player so far this campaign (per WhoScored).

Now that the Merseyside club have shared this post on their official Twitter page showcasing Firmino in one of their retro kits, this sparked a big reaction.

Some Liverpool fans took this post as an opportunity to share their thoughts on the Brazilian’s new look.

It’s great to see Firmino recognising and highlighting one of Liverpool’s former kits from years gone by.

The response to this latest social media post from the Merseyside club just goes to show that they have a lot of love for Firmino and the kit he is wearing.

Given how the Brazilian has been a pivotal figure in terms of scoring goals and providing assists during his time at the club, it’s understandable why they have a lot of love for him.
