The 23-year-old joined the Reds from the Bundesliga side for £29million in July, and has shown glimpses of his class in his first four appearances for the club.
Firmino says he moved to Liverpool because he dreams of winning a league title, and also claims he foresaw his switch to the Premier League before it actually happened.
“As a footballer I always want more. I really enjoyed my time in Germany but didn’t actually win anything. So the next step was to join a club that can compete for trophies, that’s why I came here.
“It’s strange but I remember just before I moved to Hoffenheim that I had a dream about playing in England.
“At the time that wasn’t an option, the opportunity wasn’t there for me. Then it came along a few months ago and I quickly decided it was the right offer for me.”
The Brazil international, who has scored four goals in his first 10 appearances for the Selecao, also revealed the pre-match superstitions he goes through before a game.
“A lot of Brazilians are very superstitious, especially footballers,” he continued.
“I’m the same. I always step on to the pitch with my right foot first.
“It’s quite curious that back home – even if you are left-footed – it is considered lucky to enter the pitch with your right foot. I don’t know why that is the case.
“I have other mandatory superstitions before a game too. I pray and listen to music on the way to the stadium. I also bless myself just before kick-off.”
