Kissing the badge, getting a related tattoo or signing a new contract - these are three ways for a player to declare their love for the club they play for.
But, it seems that Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino has found a new way. The Brazilian took over Liverpool’s official Instagram account and decided he would upload a rather brilliant video.
With the tune of “We are Liverpool” blaring out, Firmino posed for a selfie video while he attempted to sing the words. One thing is for sure, he certainly appeared to be enjoying it.

After the video was posted by Liverpool’s official Twitter account, Kopites were absolutely loving it. Check out some of the replies to the video:
Liverpool fans react
Firmino’s latest antics will no doubt enhance his reputation amongst fans. After signing from Hoffenheim last summer in a deal worth £29 million, the 24-year-old has established himself as a favourite at Anfield.
It may have taken him a little while to get going, but his 10 goals in 31 Premier League appearances represents a pretty decent debut season in England.
After Firmino finally started producing the goods in a red shirt, manager Jurgen Klopp warned Liverpool supporters not to judge his signings too quickly in future.
Klopp on Firmino
"It wasn't a surprise to me when I heard people questioning him. That's how it is in Germany too," Klopp told the Liverpool Echo.
"You don't watch too much German football. You get a player from Hoffenheim in Germany and everyone thought 'oh, a nice signing Liverpool.'
"But not many people here knew him because he wasn't from Bayern, he wasn't from Dortmund. I knew about Roberto. When I heard that Liverpool had signed him I thought 'how have they done this?'"
Competition for places
And Firmino will have to ensure he’s at the top of his game in order to play regular first-team football next season. Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana and - depending on where Klopp plans to play him - Georginio Wijnaldum will all be vying for the three spots behind the striker.
But Firmino showed his versatility last campaign with Klopp occasionally choosing to play him as a ‘false nine,’ which he played to great effect on two occasions in particular - against Manchester City at the Etihad where he scored once in a 4-1 victory and at home to Arsenal where he bagged a brace in a 3-3 draw.
If Firmino can add a bit more consistency to his performances, along with his bizarre videos, then Liverpool supporters will be loving him even more.
Oh, and maybe get rid of that dodgy haircut.
