WATCH: Liverpool’s Firmino offers to give back MOTM champagne

Roberto Firmino put in a Man of the Match-winning performance against Bournemouth last night, helping Liverpool record their first win under new manager Jurgen Klopp.

Nathaniel Clyne, who scored the only goal of the game, was given the job of presenting his teammate with the MOTM award - a bottle of champagne.

Looks like the 24-year-old Brazilian is still getting used to customs in English football; after being presented with the champers the midfielder motioned to give it back.

That is sweet - let’s hope his modesty survives the hype of being a Premier League footballer.
