Roberto Firmino is, quietly, about to follow Sadio Mané out of the Liverpool exit door.

Reds fans may not want to accept it just yet, but another stalwart of the Jürgen Klopp era is on his way out.

One man who was already well aware of his qualities was assistant manager Pep Lijnders.

For instance, he rarely presses at Atlético Madrid (18th percentile), whereas Firmino is expected to hunt the ball tirelessly (95th percentile).

The manager might push for Firmino to be granted an extension, but it feels unlikely that the club will grant that wish in light of the Brazilian’s declining performance levels in recent years.

At Atlético, he records very few touches in the attacking penalty area (third percentile), while Firmino is in the 88th percentile at Liverpool.
