Klopp Discusses Firmino Position Change
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says that Roberto Firmino has been playing well this season and put his decreased output in front of goal down to playing a slightly deeper position.
Firmino scored against Watford on Saturday, his 2 nd goal in his last 15 appearances. But Klopp says the Brazilian is getting back to his old form.
“He will never come to me because people are saying something is missing and ask: ‘Boss, can I play in my old position again?’
“He is doing the job. That makes him so unbelievably valuable for us. I’m really happy with him.
“Yes, we had a long season last season and he had a World Cup, then he had bits here and there. But it’s not about position. It’s about what you have to do in the right moments.
“We need to find a system where we can bring our quality on the pitch and against Watford it worked out.”
