Complete player Roberto Firmino is a 'great' asset to Liverpool, according to former Reds winger Dirk Kuyt.

The Brazilian striker has been one of Jurgen Klopp's star players this season, bagging 25 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions and helping the side to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

But Kuyt believes there is much more to the 26-year-old's game than just goals, saying his unselfish nature is what makes him a complete player.

'He has his own style and that makes him special,' Kuyt told Liverpool's official website. That's what I like in players.

'A typical goalscorer or different kind of striker? You see that a lot in Europe, but Firmino has his own style and he has his own speciality; he is scoring great goals but also feeding the players around him.

'He's a great goalscorer but he's also a team player in everything he does. I don't know him quite well, but if I see him playing he just wants to win with the team and he's not the type of player who wants to score for himself.

Firmino has 14 assists to his name this term and has played a key role in the stunning goalscoring form of team-mate Mohamed Salah. 

'That, for me, is the biggest thing about Firmino,' Kuyt continued. 'He's scoring great goals but he's also giving great assists and then you are, in my eyes, a complete player, a great thing for Liverpool.' 

'I think he's also a very hard worker, he's selfless. I watch almost all the games and I see then he's always giving his all. 

'Sometimes he's not scoring goals or giving assists, but he is always giving his all.'
