A classy gesture from Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Fabinho has been revealed by Liverpool flop Rafael Camacho. The winger spent three years at the club but made only one Premier League appearance in that time.
Former Reds flop Rafael Camacho has revealed a classy gesture he still receives from a trio of Liverpool players.
