Sadio Mane Copied Roberto Firmino's Celebration Yet Again
We reckon Sadio Mane actually prefers seeing his teammates score than actually finding the net himself judging by the joy he gets from copying their celebrations.
The Senegalese forward has developed a reputation for imitating his colleagues and did so yet again today when Roberto Firmino opened the scoring against Spurs.
The Reds' No.9 headed home Andy Robertson's pinpoint cross in the first half and as he wheeled away in celebration, pointing to his ear, he was quickly joined by Mane.

He's done it to Firmino on several occasions, memorably by doing a Kung Fu Kick away at Porto in the 5-0 thrashing last season and then the 'Golden Eye' for the late winner against PSG.

Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge have also seen Mane join in their fun when they've bagged.
However, the man himself says he is not the one doing the copying; he claims it's Firmino who mimics him.
"The fans deserve to know the truth - Firmino copies me, not me copying him!" Mane old Copa90 back in August.
"The kick was me. We try it in training. He scored and I was behind him, and he did it. The dance with Philippe [Coutinho] and Bobby was mine too!"
