Former Liverpool Star Roberto Firmino Turns Pastor In Brazil

Former Liverpool forward, Roberto Firmino has announced on social media that he is now an evangelical pastor.

The ordination ceremony occurred this past Sunday in Maceio, his hometown, at the Manah Church.

This church was established three years ago by Firmino, along with his wife Larissa Pereira, and pastors Jairo Fernandes and Keila Medeiros.

“Three years of Manah Church. What an unforgettable night… Since we met Christ, we want people to know that love. Now we have another responsibility: to be pastors,” wrote the 32-year-old forward, who currently plays for Saudi club Al-Ahli, on Instagram.

Firmino achieved success by winning the Champions League with Liverpool and the Copa America with Brazil. During his eight seasons at Liverpool from 2015 to 2023, he played a crucial role in the team’s success.

Alongside Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané, Firmino formed a formidable attacking trio that led Liverpool to win the Champions League in 2019.

He also represented Brazil, scoring 17 goals in 55 matches, and was part of the squad in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Additionally, he contributed to Brazil’s victory in the Copa America the following year.

It is worth noting that Brazilian evangelicals constitute about one-third of the country’s population of 203 million.
