Did Marco Reus deliberately copy three Liverpool celebrations after his goal against Augsburg?

The Borussia Dortmund winger got the Anfield faithful rather excited after mimicking a hat-trick of Liverpool celebrations

There’s a lot to admire about Liverpool’s front three these days.

But our absolute highlight is Sadio Mane’s tendency to mimic his team-mate’s celebrations.

The rapid Senegalese forward has been filmed emulating Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho’s theatrics this season.


As wholesome as it is endearing.

Those watching Borussia Dortmund’s draw with Augusburg last night may have noticed that Marco Reus paid tribute to Mane after his 16th minute opener.

The injury-prone German incorporated all three of the Liverpool celebrations copied by Mane this season into his post-goal routine.

What’s going on here then?

Of course the more excitable of you may be led to the conclusion that Reus is desperate to be reunited to Jurgen Klopp and may expect a high-profile move to Anfield to occur in the summer.

Liverpool have cash to spend and a hole to fill after Coutinho’s departure.

The FIFA 17 cover star has spent much of the last two years on the treatment table with a ruptured cruciate ligament keeping him out for 220 days.

Reus has previously been linked with a move to the Premier League and admitted he was ‘flattered’ by rumours of a switch to Liverpool in the summer of 2015.

It’s got all the ingredients for a tediously long and drawn out transfer saga.
