- Maurice Finck signed for Cape Town Spurs from Santos but his looks dominated headlines more than his transfer
- Roberto Firmo’s lookalike has been spotted in South Africa after he agreed to sign for Cape Town Spurs
Cape Town Spurs have dipped into the transfer market to sign Roberto Firmino, or his lookalike at least.
Spurs’ new signing, Maurice Finck, has been compared to the Liverpool star, but not for his style of play.
The defender bears a striking resemblance to the Brazilian forward, and fans can’t get over it.
Finck signed for Spurs from Santos, one of the new faces brought into the squad by Shaun Bartlett, KickOff reported. Spurs also brought in Boitumelo Radiopane from Orlando Pirates on loan and Michael Morton from Cape Town All Stars. While little is known about Finck, the news surrounding him has been dominated by his looks.
Here’s how social media reacted to the signing:
“Cape Flats Firmino”
“There’s something that the kop wants you to know, The best in the world his name is Maurice Finck. Our number nine, Give him the ball and he’ll score everytime, Si Señor, Pass the ball to Maurice and he’ll score.”
“Welcome to the club, Maurice Finck. Or is he Firmino?”
“@CapeTownSpursFC If you can bring Firmino, it means you can also bring CR7♂️”
“We got Firmino…this one should be Firmiyes.”
Juventus want Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino in any swap deal involving Adrien Rabiot
Italian giants Juventus intend to ask for Roberto Firmino should Liverpool pursue Adrien Rabiot. Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp is understood to be keen on adding a midfielder and has set his eyes on Rabiot.
Previous reports had mentioned that Liverpool were ready to offer Naby Keita in a straight swap deal. Juventus are, however, not interested in the Guinean.
The Liverpool Echo reports that Rabiot is looking to leave Turin this summer. Apart from Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea are the other clubs interested in the 27-year-old.
