Roberto Firmino’s mum could not hold back the years after he was shown a video of Liverpool fans chanting the Brazilian striker’s name.

Firmino will officially leave Liverpool at the end of this month when his contract expires, having spent eight successful years at the club.

He formed an essential trio with Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah and Senegalese forward Sadio Mane and helped the club win their first Premier League title in 30 years.

According to Mirror UK, the Brazilian played his final home game and scored in the 1-1 draw against Aston Villa on matchday 37 as he bid an emotional farewell.

Firmino’s mum’s emotional reaction

Reds fans adopted the chant ‘Si Senor’ for Firmino and sang it loudly ahead of the 2019 UEFA Champions League final against Tottenham, which they won.

The video was shown to the 31-year-old’s mum, Mariana, who was emotional and thanked the fans for the song, as seen in a video by Liverpool Events Group Boss Night on Twitter.

“They’re singing a song with my son’s name. It’s beautiful to hear it and when we’re there, Marcella. I don’t know how to thank you for the love, and for everything everyone has done. It leaves me speechless. Thank you all so much for this,” she said.

Firmino is yet to decide on his next destination, but there are rumours around him replacing Karim Benzema at Real Madrid, and also Barcelona and Saudi Arabian clubs are in the links.

Firmino’s farewell gifts to teammates

Sports Brief reported that Firmino gave Liverpool teammates personalised gifts during his farewell ceremony after the final game of the season at an event he conveyed friends and families with the team coach.

The gift boxes contained a signed Liverpool shirt, a personal perfume, and a frame of his Anfield moments, amongst other items. He was one of the four players who departed last season at the expiration of their contracts.
