Liverpool boss Klopp on Firmino: "He's doing the job."



Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has backed Roberto Firmino to start scoring goals again after ending his two-month Premier League goal drought.

The Brazilian's goal in Liverpool's 3-0 win at Vicarage Road on Saturday was his first since September, and Klopp is pleased with the forward's performance, adding he is doing 'the job'.

The German said as Goal quoted: "It all depends to what you want to see, what you expect, with what you compare it to.

"In the game against Fulham, 20 German coaches were in the stadium - I'm not sure how the critics were but when I saw them and we had a drink together, they were saying 'Bobby Firmino! What a player!'

"Because of the small things he's doing, he's working so hard, he's here, he's there, he's got six goals but he opens 5,000 gaps for everybody.

"It's about how you see it. He will never come to me and say 'because people are writing something is missing, could I play my old position again?'

"He's doing the job - that makes him so unbelievably valuable for us. I'm really happy for him.

"It's just about what we have to do in the right moment - we have to find a system where we can bring our quality on the pitch, and on Saturday we did it."
