Firmino Praise for Jurgen Klopp
Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino has heaped praise on Reds boss Jurgen Klopp’s powers of motivation ahead of this weekend’s top of the table clash with Arsenal at Anfield.
After Monday night’s defeat to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, Liverpool will go into the match with the Gunners on a low, but the Brazilian suggests that Klopp will have no issue motivating his players.
“Working with him is excellent,” Firmino beamed, “He motivates us in a different way each day, each training session, he does something new. And he helps us bring a kind of motivation from within ourselves as well.”
Firmino is also excited to be reunited with attacking partners Philippe Coutinho and Sadio Mane. Coutinho was injured over Christmas and Mane was on international duty with Senegal in January. But the effective trio are back in tandem again.
“They’re exceptional players, they’re unique. With excellent players like them, I know what they’re going to do before they get the ball. We’re going to carry on giving our absolute all.”
