– the chant that has echoed around Anfield for years – was sung once more as Roberto Firmino took a lap of honour at Anfield on Saturday. The presentation of his ‘Golden Samba’ award, given by the fans to recognise his services to Liverpool FC, evoked more emotion from the 31-year-old. After accepting the award, Firmino made sure to take in the Anfield adulation once more as ‘Si Senor’ rang out, with his family there to share in the occasion. The plaque on his award read: “For services to Liverpool FC Roberto ‘Bobby’ Firmino 2016-2023 ‘Nosso Numero Nove’” (translating to ‘Our Number Nine’). Firmino had a message for the fans after the match: “I love the fans. They’ve always supported me, they’ve given me the support I’d like, I’m grateful to everyone for the music they’ve created, it’s very moving.” Roberto Firmino’s lap of honour at Anfield was full of poignant moments, and it is clear that he will always be welcomed back at Anfield.
