Firmino Appreciates Klopp’s ‘Engine’ Tag
Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino says that he appreciates manager Jurgen Klopp’s description of him as “the engine” of the team.
Firmino has earned commendation not just for his goalscoring exploits at Liverpool, but his tremendously high work rate from the front.
The Brazilian, who signed a new five year deal last week, is one of the most frequent tacklers in the Premier League.
“I think he is right when he says that!” he told Liverpoolfc.com. “I am really an engine – I enjoy helping my team and I love to give my best all the time.
“I play every match without leaving anything behind and I hope I can continue moving forward playing in this way to help my team.
“The manager helped me a lot after he arrived here. The manager coming to the football club was not only good for me, but for the whole team. We’ve grown a lot and now we are showing that with the results on the pitch.”
