Liverpool’s Brazilian attacker Roberto Firmino was charged with drunk driving on Christmas eve, and the Kop has reacted furiously and hilariously in equal measure

The 25-year-old is an integral part of Jurgen Klopp’s set-up at Anfield, but has thrown his immediate future into jeopardy this X-mas. Firmino was charged with drunk driving by the Merseyside Police after being stopped in the early hours of Christmas eve.

It is a serious offence which could have massive repercussions on his relationship with the fans and the club. In addition to this, his hearing is on the same day as Liverpool v/s Chelsea, and Klopp may think twice about starting him in the game against Stoke City on Tuesday.

Liverpool fans were frustrated by this bit of bad news, and took to Twitter to vent their fury.

However, there was also some quite hilarious banter doing the rounds after the news broke. It happened to coincide with the discovery of a Firmino doppelganger, which was brought up by the Twitter jokers, and there’s also a number of conspiracy theory involving the Brazilian’s hairstyle and teammate Daniel Sturridge.
