“Ladies and Gentlemen, there’s something the kop wants you to know. Best in the world is Bobby Firmino!”
The above lines are lyrics to the song “Si Senor” made for Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino.
A recent video saw the above lines being sung at an airport by a Liverpool fan on his way to Madrid to watch his team play the Champions League final.
The video is doing rounds in social media and has been well received by fellow Liverpool fans, can’t say the same about the airport officials though.
Check out the video below –
The song was made by the Liverpool fans after Jurgen Klopp demanded a song for the Brazilian attacker last season in an interview.
“Do we already have a Bobby Firmino song?” asked Klopp. “But it’s only Bobby Firmino, right? That’s not a song, hello? So I think he really deserves a song. I order a song for Bobby”, he demanded.
Six months later, the fans came up with a brand new song for the Brazilian number nine at Turf Moor after his goal led the team to a 3-1 victory against Burnley. The tune is similar to a song sung by River Plate fans in Argentina.
The availability of Firmino in the upcoming final was a huge question for both the fans and the manager. However, Klopp has confirmed that the Brazilian “will be fine” for the Champions League final against Tottenham.
