'Noted' - Fabinho accepts not to take knee-slides after goal celebration gaff


Fabinho has laughed off the embarrassment of his goal celebration that saw him end up in a heap on the pitch in Lisbon

The Liverpool midfielder was excited to celebrate Ibrahima Konate's goal against Benfica with him, but got it all wrong.

Liverpool opened scoring against Benfica in their Champions League quarter-final first leg when imposing centre-back Ibrahima Konate headed home his first goal for the club in the 17th minute and marked the occasion with a knee-slide towards the touchline.

Keen for a slice of the excitement, Fabinho attempted to imitate his teammates' celebration but going for his own smooth slide cross the surface, the Brazilian end up falling untidily into an ugly forward roll.

It sparked a reaction from wife Rebecca Taveras on Twitter, who asked: "What happened with fab celebration," alongside a number of laughing emojis. But it wasn't just his other half who piled in on him. Having gone on to help Luis Diaz celebrate Liverpool's third goal of the evening with a dance routine, the club's official website Tweeted: "The dance might be the safer option in future, @_fabinhotavares ."

Accepting the feedback, Fabinho responded: "Noted," with a laughing emoji. With 37 appearances and seven goals from midfield, Fabinho has been one of Liverpool's outstanding performers in a stand-out season.
