It’s fair to say Demba Ba won the internet on Saturday morning.
The former Newcastle and Chelsea marksman’s hilarious tweet poking fun at Steven Gerrard went viral on social media.
There is no doubting that Ba was one of the most clinical frontmen in England in his prime, but he is remembered most for scoring the goal that put a huge dent into Liverpool’s Premier League title hopes in 2013/14.
When Steven Gerrard famously slipped in one of the most iconic Premier League moments of all time, it was Ba who capitalised and calmly slotted home to all but end the Reds’ hopes of winning the title.
Chelsea went on to win the game 2-0 and Liverpool ended the season in second place behind Manchester City.
And he reminded Liverpool fans of the painful moment when a video of a Futsal player slipping was doing the rounds on Twitter.
The clip had the caption ‘what would you do?’ and Ba, in a subtle but hilarious dig, said ‘score’.
The tweet conjured up a staggering 33 thousand retweets and over 100 thousand likes.
Ba, 34, is currently plying his trade in the Turkish Super Lig and has six goals in 17 league appearances for Istanbul Basaksehir.
