Firmino is quite the artist when it comes to goal celebrations.
We’ve seen his “magic carpet” against AC Milan in pre-season, his “gun-toting” fingers when he scores a worldie, and his “oh no I can’t take my shirt off” for the run-of-the-mill strikes.
But apparently, he’s now got a whole new offering lined up — he just needs to get the ball in the net!
“Whenever there is a new song out, we’ll sometimes try to rehearse a celebration so when one of us scores a goal we can celebrate it together,” he said (Echo).
“I find this a nice thing between team-mates to show the friendship between us and I try to do this whenever I can.”
“[I have something for my next goal], but it’s a surprise. You’ll see.”
He is our joint-top scorer this season with four goals in all competitions, so hopefully his next strike isn’t too far away. His last goal came in the 2-1 comeback win over Swansea City on 1st October.
It seems likely he will play up top against WBA at Daniel Sturridge’s expense — we looked much better against Man Utd on Monday once he went central and Lallana came into the midfield.
Who would you play up front on Monday — surely it’s worth playing Firmino just so we can try and see his celebration?!
