(Video) “Lighting up that pitch, not only with his touch but with his smile” – Alexander-Arnold’s hilarious Firmino commentary

Posted by

If Bobby Firmino is known for two things, it’s probably his mercurial footballing talent and dazzling smile – something that Trent Alexander-Arnold was quick to note in a recent hilarious clip.

Providing an alternative commentary for the club’s YouTube account, our No.66 commented on our Boxing Day defeat of Leicester City in 2019 and the Brazilian’s second goal of the game – saying: “Look at the joy in his face, look at the smile – lighting up that pitch, not only with his touch but with his smile”.

Seeing as the right-back provided the assist for the goal, it’s fair to say that he was accountable for a fair amount of joy that our No.9 was experiencing but he clearly enjoyed watching his finish just as much.

It was a great way to watch how the players enjoyed watching back what was a brilliant performance by the entire team.
