Fulham striker Facundo Sava has revealed he will no longer wear masks as part of his goalscoring celebrations.

The Argentine’s antics after hitting the back of the net had been one of the most bizarre scenes witnessed in The Premiership, as he would pull a mask out of his sock and put it on.

However, after netting his first goal of the season for The Cottagers against Bolton on Saturday, Sava insists he will not be reproducing his trademark celebration again.

“I’m not wearing the mask anymore,” explained Sava. “But the lady who always gives them to me brought one before the game, so it was still good luck.”

Sava was delighted to be back amongst the goals after revealing Chris Coleman’s tactics make it difficult for him to claim a regular first team place.

“I can’t remember the last time I scored so I am very happy because it has been very difficult to get a game now we’re only playing with one striker,” he added. “I dislocated my shoulder in training and missed the first two months of the season so now I must be ready if I’m needed.”
