Liverpool attacker Firmino happy with Fowler comparison: But I'm never satisfied

Liverpool attacker Roberto Firmino has welcomed comparisons with club legend Robbie Fowler.

His goal in victory over Manchester City drew parallels with a famous Fowler effort at Old Trafford back in 1995.

“Yes, I saw the comparisons and similarities with Fowler's goal because I was sent an Instagram example," Firmino told Liverpoolfc.com.

“I was very happy when I was compared to him. He is a legend, he was an excellent player, and that left me very happy and pleased to see my goal being compared to his."

However, he added: “No, I am never happy – I always want more from myself.

“That will not stop until I've finished my playing career. I dream aloud and I want more and more from myself.

“I always enjoy scoring for my team and I always plan to do my best and try and help the team with goals.

“That makes me very happy because I am know I am helping the team when I score. I intend to score as many goals as I can to continue helping us to win."
