Roberto Firmino Pocketed An Insane Amount Of Money After Goals Vs. Swansea
Roberto Firmino not only netted a brace against Swansea City on Boxing Day, but also pocketed a cool goal bonus.
Liverpool reentered the Champions League spots following their thrashing of bottom of the league, Swansea City.
Goals courtesy of Philippe Coutinho, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, not to mention a double from 'Bobby' Firmino ensured all three points.

As a result, Liverpool move one point above Spurs, and four ahead of Arsenal, with the race for the Champions League places hotting up.
Jurgen Klopp's charges are now set to face Leicester City with Firmino hoping to add to his 16 goal tally.

He scored his 15th then 16th goals of the season against the Swans, and raked in a nice bonus in the process.
Firmino, who's on a reported £68,085-a-week contract, has a clause in his Liverpool deal which provides cash incentives for goals.
He earned £25,000 for each of his first five goals, and £45,000 between six and 10. As well as £65,000 from 11 onwards.
But his second goal from Tuesday saw him trigger a staggering £85,000 bonus.
Next time #Firmino scores he receives £45000. From 11th goal on £65000, from 16th £85000. #FootballLeaks #Spiegel #LFC #liverpool @SPORTBILD pic.twitter.com/HhvsxtwAP5

The 26-year-old has become an integral part of Klopp's set up, and is forging a deadly partnership alongside fellow Brazilian Coutinho, and Mohamed Salah who supplied him with his second goal.
