Roberto Firmino deserves Oscar, Liverpool fans say, for part in brilliant clip

Liverpool fans think Roberto Firmino deserves an Oscar for his part in a hilarious viral clip.

The Brazilian has been a big part in the Reds’ 22-point lead at the top of the Premier League.

With 10 goals and 12 assists across all competitions, the forward has continued to be part of Jurgen Klopp’s plans.

Firmino is a fan favourite for his antics on and off the pitch.

And footage has emerged of the 28-year-old showing off his acting skills in a hilarious advert.

In the clip, players are holding a “meeting” to create an social media plan for their partnership with coconut water provider Chaokoh.

Jordan Henderson, leading the meeting, is waiting with Andy Robertson, Curtis Jones, Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren.

Firmino finally turns – but is more interested in his phone, saying on it as he sits down.

Later in the meeting, Matip is explaining some facts about coconuts.

After an awkward silence, the Brazilian simply points at the defender to say: “Knowledge.”

The forward soon gets distracted, though, getting back on his – much to the captain’s fury.

With a brutal stare down, Firmino sheepishly puts his phone down.

As Henderson refocuses the meeting, he talks about the strategy for social media site TikTok.

But Fimino mishears him, saying: “At two o’clock?”

The Reds captain has had enough, walking out of the meeting and calling his team-mates a “f***ing joke”.

Robertson takes over as the end product is the forward holding two cans of Chaokoh while the Scot plays the guitar.

This footage has been viewed more than 500,000 times since it was shared on the club’s Twitter page on Wednesday.
