When asked about comments made by Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos on Tuesday stemming from a pair of contentious incidents during the Champions League final, Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino couldn't help taking a shot at the four-time Champions League winner.

"I prefer not to make any comments, I think he has a view because he was the champion but I thought he was an idiot for what he said but that's OK," Firmino offered, per Sky Sports' translation.
After denying his role in injuries to Reds star Mohamed Salah and 'keeper Loris Karius and the subsequent hysterics, Ramos added, "Now it only needs Firmino to say he got the flu as a drop of my sweat fell on him."
Luckily for Firmino, he does not have the flu, and whilst in conversation with media ahead of Brazil's World Cup warm-up with Austria on Sunday, the versatile forward with sparkling choppers also addressed reports of Liverpool's interest in Roma shot-stopper and fellow La Canarinha standout Alisson.
"Sometimes I talk to him about it and have a joke with him, saying 'you should come to Liverpool," Firmino added. "His agent is sorting his future but it wouldn't be a bad thing to have him here at Liverpool."
