Coutinho feels Klopp has brought a winning mentality to Liverpool

Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho has heaped praise on his boss Jurgen Klopp as the midfield ace says the former Dortmund coach has brought a winning mentality to Anfield.

After 11 matches, Klopp has led the Reds to 26 points, winning eight and losing just once.

"The coach has brought this winning mentality. He emphasises it a lot," Coutinho told Liverpool's official website.

"He gives confidence to the players. I think we now believe more in our own potential and that has made us better on the field. Since he has arrived, he has implemented his own ideas.

"Of course, week by week, we train and practise depending on our next opponent. But he always demands the same thing: hard work with a lot of dedication."

Coutinho also praised the effort of his compatriot Roberto Firmino, who he has formed a good partnership with at Anfield.

"Roberto is very intelligent, he is someone who thinks very fast and he tries to create room for the other players," Coutinho added.

"In each training session, we get used to each other's styles and we get to know each other and apply that on the pitch.

"Firmino is a very skilful player, he has incredible ball control, it makes the difference for our team in those areas. He scores in many games."
