Roberto Firmino has been labelled a problem for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.
The Brazilian forward netted only 6 goals this campaign with his performances below his usual standard.
Reds legend John Aldridge believes there are no guarantees that the forward would turn things around at Anfield.
“From my point of view as a former striker, there is no real belief in the forwards and it is horrible to see,” Aldridge told the Liverpool Echo.
“Look at Firmino, he is a problem. He has lost his mojo completely and I have been one of his biggest fans, but it has been like this for a long time now. It is evident to all the fans.
“Jurgen believes in him, of course, and he is continuing to play to get himself out of the slump but it looks more and more unlikely the longer it goes on.”
“His demeanour is different and he drops into midfield to do a job there at times, but when you have a number nine on your back, your job is to score goals.
“He’s lost his belief, totally, his confidence, everything in his game seems to have gone and he just can’t shake himself out of it. Maybe he needs a break? Maybe next season the return of the fans will help him out of it?”
