Firmino was taking pictures with the assembled crowd of supporters when the incident happened as he stepped out of his vehicle. He quickly vanished amid them, however.</p>
<p>After eight years at Anfield, where he won the Premier League and the Champions League, Firmino is the most recent celebrity to join Saudi Arabia’s lucrative Pro League.</p>
<p>Firmino made the announcement that he has joined Al-Ahli in a video that the team broadcast on Twitter. “I always played for big teams, now I am in Al-Ahli,” he said.</p>
<p>Edouard Mendy, the custodian for Chelsea, has already joined Al-Ahli, a club with a headquarters in Jeddah.</p>
<p>Other Saudi Pro League clubs have signed high-profile players including Marcelo Brozovic, Kalidou Koulibaly, N’Golo Kante, and Karim Benzema. The movement was begun by Cristiano Ronaldo when he signed with Al-Nassr in January.</p>
<p>With Liverpool, Firmino has won the English League Cup, FA Cup, Premier League, and Champions League. The Club World Cup and European Super Cup are additional trophies.</p>
