Liverpool FC coach Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he is not worried about Roberto Firmino’s goalscoring form.

The Kop No.9 has scored 77 goals in 235 games for the Merseyside club since his move from Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in the summer of 2015, and he has helped the Reds win the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup.

As things stand, Klopp's side are on the brink of winning their first league title in 30 years, with only two more victories required before they'll be labelled as Premier League champions, pending when the 2019-20 season resumes amid the coronavirus outbreak.

However, the German boss is more satisfied than ever with Firmino's 'unselfish' displays

The Liverpool manager told JOE: "He's a connector. It's pretty rare that you meet a person like Bobby who is so selfless and unselfish.

Former Liverpool boss: The Premier League campaign has to be completed.

"He's like, ball there, ball there, pass the ball and he's really happy about it.

"Then he realises 'well I didn't score for four or five weeks actually'."

Firmino has only netted once at Anfield this season and the goal was against Atletico Madrid in their Champions League last-16 second leg tie just before football was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Klopp added: "But it's unbelievable [his unselfishness], it doesn't matter.

"No really, he's world class. Just a sensationally good guy."
