Cape Town - Brazilian legend Ronaldinho expects the goals to flow at Liverpool next season following the arrival of Roberto Firmino.

The Liverpool Echo reports that Ronaldinho expects new signing Roberto Firmino to shine alongside fellow Brazilian Philippe Coutinho.

Firmino, who was strongly linked with a move to Liverpool's arch-rivals Manchester United, will join the Anfield club after signing a long-term deal.

Ronaldinho predicts big things for Brendan Rodgers side with his countrymen set to star together in midfield.

“For Liverpool to have Coutinho and Firmino is a big achievement for them,” Ronaldinho said.

“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.

“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.”

Liverpool reportedly spent £29 milion to bring Firmino to England from Bundesliga side Hoffenheim.
