Roberto Firmino

Liverpool star Roberto Firmino has revealed how he became the player he is today as a result of the good work by German manager Jurgen Klopp on him.

Roberto Firmino has vowed to repay the manager by giving his best because of the motivation he got from him.

It would be recalled that the 27-year-old had a slow start following his move from German Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim in the summer of 2015 and was first managed by former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers who was not patient with him.

Roberto Firmino made it clear that he became the player he is today and got to the best when Jurgen Klopp joined the club some three years ago.

The Brazilian international recalls how he started his football career as a central defender before being transformed into a midfielder but his best position ever as a striker came under the German manager.

He hailed Jurgen Klopp for being the excellent, amazing and passionate manager who motivates him each time he is down.

However, there is no doubt that with Roberto Firmino, Liverpool have got one of the best attack force as he has been able to blend well with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
