Two Liverpool stars are reaching for a higher prize
Liverpool and Brazil playmaker Roberto Firmino has celebrated his Christian faith by getting baptised alongside teammate Alisson Becker and his wife.
Influential attacker Firmino has been critical to the drive which has seen Liverpool ascend the Premier League summit in 2019/20, but his biggest cause to raise his hands this year was his decision to publicly declare his faith in Jesus.
Firmino and his friends and family members wore Hillsong, ‘cross=love’ t-shirts for the baptism.
The Brazil international said, “I gave you my failures and the victories I will give you too. My greatest title is your love Jesus! Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”
Firmino has already won the 2019 FIFA Club World Cup with Liverpool this season.
