Roberto Firmino of Liverpool was spotted with Brazilian teammates Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus
After Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Arsenal, Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus swapped shirts with Roberto Firmino for the final time.
The former Hoffenheim attacker demonstrated his importance to Jurgen Klopp’s side by scoring his 11th goal against the north London club, securing a point after the Premier League leaders took a two-goal lead through Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus.
Mohamed Salah pulled one back before the break, but he blew a penalty chance on the hour mark, firing his penalty past the post. Firmino, on the other hand, was the difference when he came on and rose above Ben White to head home an equalizer.
Klopp’s most used player since arriving on Merseyside is set to leave Anfield when his contract expires in the summer. With his seven-year stint in the English Premier League coming to an end, Jesus took advantage of the opportunity to obtain a memento from the departing Reds icon.
In behind-the-scenes footage posted by Liverpool, the two Brazil internationals are shown enjoying a warm embrace after the Premier League juggernauts locked horns.
The pair continued their discussion in the tunnel following the duel with Martinelli also joining the conversation before the former Manchester City talisman and Firmino swapped shirts.
Firmino has been praised for his interplay, despite playing a role that does not see him making headlines like Sadio Mane and Salah did at the height of their success.
“Gabriel Jesus is a player I admire and believe is underappreciated. The obvious question is whether he can lead the line for a big club like Manchester City.” In 2021, Owen Hargreaves spoke to BT Sport.
“However, his goal return is fantastic.” He works incredibly hard for the team and gives so much to it, similar to [Roberto] Firmino at Liverpool, but I am happy for him to get on the scoresheet.
“He’s been fantastic on the right side.”
