Roberto Firmino has committed his future to Liverpool by signing a new long-term contract, the Premier League club said on Sunday.

The Brazilian forward, who joined from Hoffenheim in 2015, has made 140 appearances in all competitions and scored 50 goals, becoming a key player for the Merseyside club alongside fellow attackers Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

Liverpool did not provide details about the 26-year-old Firmino’s new contract.

“The club have taken me in an incredible way and I’ve grown a lot here with my work with the support of the whole team. I am very happy here,” Firmino told Liverpool’s website.

“Everything fits in the best possible way. My team mates are fantastic and I am very grateful to be able to play with them at this club.”

Liverpool are third in the Premier League and hopeful of reaching the Champions League final. They beat Italian Serie A side AS Roma 5-2 in the first leg of their semi-final last week.

“I love to play for Liverpool. The fans are excellent and fantastic in how they support us all the way. They support us throughout the games and the work they do during the match is beautiful,” Firmino added.
