The Brazilian will leave the Reds on a free transfer at the end of the 2022/23 season after eight years of service at Anfield.
There have been concerns that Firmino has already played his final game for the club though having missed the last six games with a muscle problem.
Speaking after Liverpool’s 3-0 win at Leicester City on Monday during which travelling fans chanted Firmino’s name and heralded him at full-time, Klopp revealed there is a chance of the forward returning for their final home game of the season against Aston Villa. the UFABET report
“It [the chanting] was so cool. I’ve never seen anything like that [for somebody who wasn’t playing],” Klopp said.
“I think he has a chance of playing [against Villa]. We drive home, Tuesday is a day off – not for him but for the others – and then Wednesday he will be in team training, that is my information.
“We have to see. The Saturday game is a super difficult game for plenty of reasons. Probably farewell around the game for a few players, and then playing for absolutely everything against the second or third-best team in the Premier League for the second part of the season. That’s super challenging.
