He posted a picture where he knelt in the middle of his Brazilian counterpart Fabinho and Egyptian Mohamed Salah. The football stars knelt and pointed their figures to the sky in an attempt to reference “God” in their triumph.
In the caption, Firmino quoted Romans 11:36, a Bible verse which says: “For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory forever. Amen.” He spelt out the Bible verse in Portuguese.
In the other hand, Virgil van Dijk, a 29-year-old Netherlands and Liverpool defender also took to social media to celebrate the Premier League triumph in a unique way. He used the victory to reflect on his humble beginning as a poor kid who worked hard to get to where he is. And dedicated the Premier League title to Liverpool.
He wrote: “Just a boy from Breda who became a Premier League champion. This is a dream come true, but also an opportunity for me to help every child in the world remember that anything is possible. Hard work and persistence! Don’t let anyone’s ignorance, hatred or negativity stop you from becoming the best version of yourself. Thanks to my family, fans, teammates and the staff. Liverpool, this one’s for you! “
In the case of Sadio Mane, he spent most parts of the celebration filming almost every moment of the night using his phone. In the process, he caught up with Frank Lampard, the manager of Chelsea, in the tunnel of Anfield stadium.
The excited 28-year-old Senegalese winger continued firming as Lampard decided to show some respect to one of the most consistent players in the Premier League. He walked up to Mane and gave him a hug while they exchange pleasantries.

Jurgen Klopp described Liverpool’s Victory as absolutely special
The manager of Liverpool, Jurgen club said in his post-match interview on Wednesday night that the historic Premier League triumph was “absolutely special” for him. He noted that the 5-3 win against Chelsea, a club battling for a Champions League qualification, made the night more special for him and the team.
“We all know it could have been different”, Jurgen Klopp said. “It could have been worse, for example, if we never won the game.
“The boys gave us the opportunity to have a really special night. I think a lot of people thought before the game one team fights for the Champions League, the other team is maybe already on the beach.
“But these boys are so special. I could not be more proud. Throwing a performance like this in on the pitch tonight… it was an open game but nice, nice goals.
