When Coutinho scored a stunning goal to make it 4-1 in our win over Hull City last weekend, he immediately sought out Roberto Firmino and they performed a funny jig.
Some onlookers said it was a jibe at Paul Pogba’s celebration earlier in the day, but now the 23-year-old has explained what it was all about.
Apparently, it is from a Brazilian song called “Fala aqui com a minha mao”. According to his quotes to the Echo, it means “Talk with my hands.” (could any of our Portuguese speaking readers confirm that?!).
“It’s from a Brazilian song,” Coutinho said.
“It was Roberto’s idea. Before the game he said to me: ‘if either of us score today we should do this dance together.’
“The song in Portuguese is called: fala aqui com a minha mao. In English it means: talk with my hands.
“It was a good moment for us together.”
The goal was his third of the season and helped cancel out Hull’s brief revival from their goal that brought the score back to 3-1.
Amazingly, there were just nine passes between Karius picking the ball out of our net and Coutinho putting the ball in the back of their net.
Next up for Coutinho and the Reds is a trip to Swansea tomorrow.
