Liverpool fans have taken to social media to joke with forward Roberto Firmino about how remarkably white his teeth are after footage a clip of him chatting went out on social media.
The Brazilian arrived at Anfield in 2015 from Bundesliga side Hoffenheim for £29million and has since become an integral part of the Reds’ team.
Firmino, despite not scoring many goals, is well-known for his chances and crucial role in build up play. This allows for Sadio Mane to move on the left flank and Mohamed Salah to be there.
The 29-year old Firmino has scored 67 goals over 214 league games, winning the title as well as the Champions League.
Firmino has become a fan’s favourite amongst the Kop and Liverpool supporters have taken to social media to joke about his flawless teeth compared to other white items.
On Reddit, someone posted an image of the forward with the caption: “Firmino’s teeth are so white it makes his AirPods look yellow.”
The post, obviously made in jest, was very popular amongst Liverpool fans and many commented on just how their strikers’ bright teeth discolour supposedly ‘white’ objects.
Jurgen Klopp needs to replace Roberto Firmino. Comment below
One person joked: “His dentist works hard but not as hard as Bobby. Si Senor!”
Another added: “P****** myself at this, go on Bobby lad!”
Firmino’s position in Jurgen Klopp’s side has come under pressure recently from some fans who, although realising his importance, believe an out and out goalscorer could make the team very hard to beat.
Although Diogo Jota is a versatile striker, there is still competition for his spot. Some even believe another option would be more beneficial.
According to transfermarkt, the Reds are interested in signing RB Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi.

The 19-year-old German has scored seven and assisted once in eight appearances in the Austrian Bundesliga already this season and is thought to be available for approximately £18m.
The website also states that Barcelona is interested in the versatile forwards signing.
Klopp might be eager to close the deal sooner than expected, as Harvey Elliott has an ankle injury that will keep him out of action. Salah and Mane will also be absent for the entire month of January while they represent their respective countries at the African Cup of Nations.
