Kaka has hailed Liverpool’s Brazilian trio of Alisson, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino.
The Brazil legend singled out Kop No.9 Firmino for particular praise, describing him and former Reds star, Barcelona’s Luis Suarez, as the ‘best strikers in the world’.
Before picking up a knee injury in January, Suarez had 11 goals and seven assists forBarcelonain La Liga.
Firmino has helped the Reds build a record 22-point lead at the top of the Premier League.
The former Hoffenheim star has bagged 10 goals in 33 games in all competitions, including the crucial winner in the Club World Cup Final in December’s meeting with Flamengo.
Allison and Fabinho were both vital members of Jurgen Klopp’s Champions League winning side last term and have again thrived this term also.
Now, Kaka has seen fit to laud his compatriots.
“Alisson is the best goalkeeper in the world right now,” said Kaka.
“Fabinho is one of the best midfielders and for me, Firmino and Suarez as the best strikers in the world right now.
“Firmino is not just a striker who stays in the box all the time, he comes and gets the ball and creates the plays. For me, it’s really good to see Brazilian’s having this great success in the Premier League.”
Kaka also labelledLiverpoolas his favourite side to watch right now.
“It’s good to see a team playing a season like this. In a competition like the Premier League it’s very hard to have a season like this.
“They’re in very good shape, they have very good coach and very good players. Jurgen [Klopp] is a pioneer, he’s not afraid to try something different.”
