'Roberto Firmino's Perfect Replacement' Was Sat In The Liverpool End For Carabao Cup Final, Their Fans Are Buzzing
None other than Joao Felix was sitting in the Liverpool end of Wembley Stadium, with fans buzzing over the potential summer signing.
Liverpool fans reckon he's the 'perfect' replacement for Roberto Firmino as they spoke highly of the Atletico Madrid phenom.
The 22-year-old shared a picture of himself at the game on social media as supporters talked him up ahead of a possible move to the Premier League.

One tweeted: "He is one player I would absolutely love at Liverpool. Still has so much potential. He would cost around 60-70,mill imo. A quality firmino replacement right there."
A second tweeted: "He's the perfect Firmino replacement."
A third added: "Looks a cracking player to me. Bear in mind he plays for a defensive minded manager. Klopp would set him free."
A fourth commented: "Would love to see the kid at LFC but, he's 100+M when he was only a teen."
Felix is in his third season at Atleti following his big money move from Benfica in 2019.
But he's failed to light up Spain's top flight, with the attacking star unable to consistently perform under the tutelage of Diego SImeone.
As a result, he's been attracting interest from Europe's elite, including Barcelona and Manchester United, among others, thought to be keen on snapping up Felix.
Liverpool fans, though. believe he'd flourish and be set free under Klopp.
