Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino is facing an uphill task to break Jurgen Klopp's all-time record, with only three games remaining in his Liverpool career. The Brazilian has made 353 appearances for Klopp, making him the manager's most-used player, but he is unlikely to break the record set by Dortmund legend Roman Weidenfeller, who clocked 25,156 minutes during the 2014/15 campaign.
Firmino has played for 25,020 minutes for Klopp, placing him behind Weidenfeller and former Klopp player Neven Subotic. The Liverpool forward would need to play for 137 more minutes in the next three games to break Weidenfeller's record.
Liverpool's final games of the season are against Leicester, Aston Villa, and Southampton. Firmino's absence from full training due to a muscle injury makes it unclear whether he will be involved in these games. Klopp had previously commented that Firmino "looks good" and "is doing more and more," but the team is "waiting for him to join team training again."
Firmino's imminent departure from Liverpool on a free transfer makes it unclear whether he will play for the club again. Liverpool fans will have to wait and see if Firmino will be able to add more minutes to his already impressive record under Klopp.
