Arsene Wenger has been living his best life since retiring from managing football teams. I don’t know what he does with most of his time, but I do appreciate the fact that he’s constantly on television talking about how good Liverpool is. This time he was on BeIN Sports talking about the famous front three.

“I like [Mo Salah] very much, he has huge potential, and [Sadio] Mane as well.” Wenger says in the video. “But you forget a little bit, the guy who sacrifices himself is [Roberto] Firmino. And like Suarez did for Messi and Neymar, [he is] the guy who works for the team, who works for everybody and gets them to shine. This piece of the jigsaw is always very difficult to find: a striker who is generous.”

The thing about the front three is that they blend so well with each other, and Wenger recognizes that. Arsene is right to heap praise on Firmino. He is the “piece of the jigsaw” that makes the Liverpool attack work. All hail Firmino.
