Klopp Not Worried About Firmino Form
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says he is unconcerned about the form of Roberto Firmino. The Brazilian has played a slightly deeper role in the Reds attack this season and his goals and assist return has dropped.
But the German says Firmino is still performing a valuable role for the team and his attitude will see his outputs increase soon, “It’s absolutely OK,” Klopp replied. “It’s not that he plays his best football in each segment of the game but he is just an important player.
“That’s how it is with a player’s career; you have these moments where you fly and you cannot really explain it, and other moments where you have to work a bit harder to come again in the moment where you fly. That’s exactly the case for him.
“It’s nothing to worry about or anything. It’s just a normal football season. We all have to go through these little holes or whatever and then everything will be fine again, especially with him because his attitude is absolutely phenomenal. That makes it easier for him, he will never stop. That’s good, so everything will be fine.”
