involved in a heated exchange with Mason Holgate tonight in the derby after Holgate took a cheap shot and shoved him into the crowd. Firmino came steaming over clearly angry and swearing in Portuguese the ref stepped between them but there seemed to be something said while the cameras view was blocked that sent the reasonably calm Holgate crazy. Holgate could be seen suggesting to the ref something was said obvious speculation that it was the N word and lip reading his conversation on TV it seems to suggest that’s what he’s saying he heard. Be very interesting to see what the fall out from this one is and if Holgate makes a complaint. It was close enough that the refs microphone might pick it up but I don’t believe the exchanges over the headsets are recorded.
