Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino wins PFA Fans’ Player of the Month for January


Roberto Firmino had a stuttering start to life at Anfield following his £29m move from Hoffenheim in the summer of 2015, but he impressed last month.

In four Premier League matches, the 24-year-old found the back of the net four times and provided an assist.

The Brazilian scooped the Professional Footballers’ Association’s Fans’ award after receiving 40.2% of the public vote, beating Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney (36.4%) and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane (23.2%).

Eleven top-flight footballers were shortlisted.
