Sadio Mane was triply delighted to see his mate, Bobby Firmino, back in training and made sure the cameras present were fully aware.
As the players were recorded walking out to begin their latest session, our No.10 had a clear message he wanted to share.
The 29-year-old said: “Bobby’s back, Bobby’s back, Bobby’s back!” and then posed for a picture for the camera man who was in place.
The return of the Brazilian will be a huge boost for the squad, particularly as Mo Salah will join the Senegalese forward at AFCON in January.
Hopefully our No.9 will be fit enough to return very soon but there’s certainly no need to rush him, as is his importance for the entirety of the festive period.
It’s great that the players and fans alike acknowledge the importance of the former Hoffenheim man and we all can’t wait to see him on the pitch.
