Liverpool fans are getting emotional after Roberto Firmino is serenaded by 'Si Senor' chant
| Last updated
Liverpool fans are an emotional mess this morning after fan footage of Roberto Firmino being serenaded by the famous 'Si Senor' chant continues to be shared on social media.
The Brazilian forward, who has made over 350 appearances for Liverpool since his £29 million move from Hoffenheim in 2015, is set to leave Anfield at the end of the season.
Firmino personally informed manager Jurgen Klopp that he will not renew his deal this summer back in March, according to reports, as he prepares for a new venture.
If he does feature in their last home game of the season against Aston Villa on Saturday, it will no doubt be an emotional farewell for the highest-scoring Brazilian in Premier League history.
In fact, the 31-year-old must have been on the verge of tears on Monday night, when Liverpool fans showed their appreciation for Firmino with a lengthy rendition of the 'Si Senor' chant.
As you can see in the footage above, Curtis Jones, Fabinho and Cody Gakpo, amongst others, embraced one of the longest serving players in the current Liverpool squad as he thanked the strong away support.
Here's how social media reacted to the scenes.
One fan commented on the video, saying: "That's some rendition of the Firmino song from the away end. Booming out around the King Power. He's guaranteed some farewell at Anfield on Saturday," while another said: "I'm in tears already."
A third wrote: "Nah, imagine how Firmino must feel hearing the fans chant your name for 10 minutes when you’re not even playing."
A fourth added: "I can't be the only one that woke up this morning singing Si Señor."

After the full-time, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admitted he had never seen anything like the reception Firmino received after the win.
“It was so cool. I’ve never seen anything like that (for somebody who wasn’t playing)," he said.
“I think he has a chance of playing (against Aston Villa). We drive home tomorrow and it will be a day off – not for him, but the others – and then Wednesday he will be in team training, that is my information.
“We have to see. The Saturday game is a super difficult game for plenty of reasons. Probably farewell around the game for a few players, and then playing for absolutely everything against the second or third best team in the Premier League for the second part of the season. That’s super challenging.”
