Born and raised in Brazil, Jose Roberto was a strong pillar of support for his son, Roberto Firmino. He played a significant role in shaping Firmino’s career, standing by him through every step of his journey from his humble beginnings in Brazil to his meteoric rise in global football.

Roberto Firmino, born Roberto Firmino Barbosa de Oliveira, is a well-known figure in football, playing as a forward or attacking midfielder for Premier League club Liverpool and the Brazil national team.
