Firmino beats Rooney to PFA Fans’ Player of the Month for January

Liverpool attacker Roberto Firmino has been named as the Professional Footballers’ Association’s Fans’ Player of the Month for January.


The Brazilian 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.

Firmino scooped the award after receiving 40.2% of the public vote, beating Manchester United captainWayne Rooney (36.4%) and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane (23.2%).

Eleven top-flight footballers were shortlisted.
