Roberto Firmino’s exuberant goal celebrations have evidently made their way overseas.
The Brazilian forward has built himself a reputation as Liverpool’s resident celebratory choreographer, although Sadio Mane will undoubtedly argue he deserves that title.
Between his unrivalled quirkiness and his panache on the pitch, he has grown to be a Kop favourite and one of the Reds’ most valuable commodities.
His bag of celebrations has proven unusually deep in an era of trademark routines, with Liverpool’s prolific record under Jurgen Klopp having given him plenty to cheer about.
Firmino’s notable efforts range from the ‘almost taking the shirt off’ charade, to Luis Suarez-esque ‘gun firing’ motion and even samba dancing during Philippe Coutinho’s time at the club.
He also famously covered one eye after his winning goal against Paris Saint-Germain in September in recognition of the injury he sustained against Tottenham.
It’s been his acrobatic karate kick that has seemingly had the biggest impression, being added to FIFA 18 earlier in the year and more recently being imitated by Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembélé during a France training session.
