Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has dismissed claims that Brazilian forward Roberto Firmino is not tired and fit to play despite not having his best form at the moment.

The Reds forward is leaving in his shadows from what he was last season as he has only one goal to his name in last nine appearances.

Liverpool manager Klopp insists there should be no worries about the player noting that the fact that he is fine is the reason why he has been played in virtually all Premier League games this season.

The German boss said whatever the case might be, the 27-year-old’s is working hard and will soon return to his best stressing that he has got the ability to score.

Klopp stated that he is not concerned about the current form and is happy about the player’s effort.

Meanwhile, it is revealed that the former Borussia Dortmund manager and the staff are always reluctant about leaving Firmino out of the team because of the importance attached to his presence in the team.

Howbeit, Firmino is not the only player who is underperforming in the Liverpool team compared to last season with Egyptian international Hazard also a major concern due to his unsatisfactory form.
