Liverpool Klopp lavishes praise on Bobby.

Updated: Oct 30, 2022

Jurgen Klopp lavished praise on Roberto Firmino following the Brazilian’s recent form for Liverpool, saying “Bobby is an exceptional player, nobody else said that more often than me.”

The German has also called on all the Liverpool players to improve their goalscoring ratio across games in order to improve their form this season.

Firmino has scored eight goals and provided four assists so far this season, the same numbers as Mohamed Salah.

"Bobby is in a really good moment, I am really happy for him,” Klopp said in his press conference on Friday as BBC Sport quoted.

"Even for us when it is not the best moment we ever had, it’s extremely helpful for us when the boys know where the goal is. We just need to spread the goals a bit more to different games, let me say it like this.

"Not focus on [scoring] nine, then one, then seven, then nil. Positive things always help all of us and footballers as well.

"Bobby is an exceptional player, nobody else said that more often than me, but it's not like he was flying in all the games. Now we take the numbers and say it’s the best start to a season, that might be statistically the case but we as a team didn't have the best start in our lives for different reasons.

"Nothing changed really for Bobby, he always played when he was fit in this team, he contributed when he was fit but he has to do it again and again and again.

"There were a lot of positive moments but with all respect to Rangers we know there is a big gap between them and Manchester City.”
