Brazil great Ronaldinho says that with countrymen Roberto Fimino and Philippe Coutinho in the team, Liverpool will have one of the "most exciting midfields in Europe" next season.

Firmino, 23, signed for the Reds from Hoffenheim for £29m yesterday.

Former Barcelona playmaker Ronaldinho said: “For Liverpool to have Coutinho and Firmino is a big achievement for them.”

“It is going to give them one of the most exciting midfields in Europe.

“The creativity, intelligence, and goals they have between them can change Liverpool as a team. It is a big sign of intent. To have a midfield with those two gives them a big chance to qualify for the Champions League next season.


Ronaldinho is looking forward to watching Liverpool next season

“It is a dream for the Liverpool strikers to have that sort of service. If you can’t score goals in a team with Coutinho and Firmino in midfield then you wont score goals in any team. They will create so many chances.”

2005 Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldinho, 35, is currently a free agent after last playing for Mexican club Queretaro.
