Klopp thanks Liverpool Scouts.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has praised his scouting department at Anfield for helping them in the signing of Roberto Firmino.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss is delighted to have Firmino as one of his attacking options as the German said the Reds' scouting department did a good job.

The Brazil international had already moved to the Merseyside club from Hoffenheim before Klopp’s arrival at Anfield.

However, Klopp said as skysports.com quoted: “When I saw that Liverpool had signed him I thought, ‘How could Liverpool do this?’ They were not in their 100% best moment and other clubs would have spent more on him, so I thought, immediately, ‘What a good transfer for them.’

“When I heard about it I thought they had made a good signing, because I felt pretty sure clubs would have paid a lot more for him,” Klopp added.

“A lot of people thought, ‘Hoffenheim, where is this? That is a lot of money’.

“In Germany some people don’t know where it is but, if you play your football there, then you feel it is a tough place and so you know what a decent job the scout did, whoever brought him in for that price.”
