Firmino is arguably one of the best attackers in the Premier League at the moment and if his performances during the current season are anything to go by, the 24-year-old could well be considered world-class before too long.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Firmino has gone on to reveal that he actually started off his career as a full-back and only moved into his current attacking position after entering the Under-18s.
The Brazilian international said: “I started out as a defender.
“I played as a full-back and then I moved into the centre. I played defence right the way through until the Under-18s. Honestly!"
