Watch: Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino can’t believe he’s allowed to keep champagne
The man of the match was genuinely surprised to be handed a bottle of champagne after Liverpool's win over Bournemouth
Roberto Firmino put in an impressive performance as Liverpool reached the quarter-finals of the League Cup thanks to a 1-0 win over Bournemouth at Anfield on Wednesday night.
The Brazilian showed glimpses of brilliance as Jurgen Klopp’s men secured their first victory under their new manager to set up a last-eight clash with Southampton at St Mary’s.
Firmino has struggled to make an impact since his big-money move from Hoffenheim during the summer transfer window and has missed a spell of games due to injury.
But the 24-year-old is gradually getting used to life in England and looked genuinely thrilled to be handed a bottle of champagne after being named the man of the match in Liverpool’s win on Merseyside.
Firmino was handed the bottle by team-mate Nathaniel Clyne but proceeded to try and give it back to the interviewer at the end of the broadcast, only to show his sheer delight at being told he was able to keep it.
