The 23-year-old forward is 1 of seven new faces at Liverpool after signing from Hoffenheim last month.

He has now began education at Melwood – being absent in the tour in the Far East because he played within the Copa America – and says his time within the Bundesliga has prepared him well for the English game.

“Without a doubt, German football, exactly where I’ve played for practically five years, is very similar – possibly just a little significantly less tough than English football. I am confident I’ll be just fine right here,” Firmino told the club’s official web site when asked if felt he could adapt to English football.

“It’s a one of a kind opportunity. I could say Liverpool may be the initially huge club I’ll play for. It really is a huge chance for me to show what I can do.

“Although it really is a young group, there is plenty of experience and excellent in it. Every single one from the players will have to do their most effective to have the opportunity to play and win games as a consequence.”

Firmino mentioned his compatriot Philippe Coutinho played his portion in persuading him that a move to Merseyside would be a advantageous one.

He said: “He (Coutinho) was pretty useful although it was ultimately my selection. I wanted to understand a lot more about how it works here and he had some extremely great points to tell me.

“He’s a fantastic character and I hope we are able to nurture our friendship at Liverpool.”
