Footballers have different approaches to the widely celebrated game. Some are more orthodox in their approach and some play with their mind. Now Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has examined the style of one of his key players, saying that the immensely talented player solely relies on his instincts.
Well, the German was referring to his key Brazilian striker – Roberto Firmino.
It is widely known that Firmino is more comfortable in playing as a winger but the Brazilian has displayed incredible form, when used as a striker on various occasions this season.
Although the Brazilian didn’t score in Liverpool’s 5-1 romping of Hull City last week, but Firmino has sealed a place in the first-team and is an integral part of Klopp’s plans for this season due to his natural ability and direct style.
“Roberto [Firmino] is a player who is always involved. He has natural skill. He doesn’t think too much, he has instinct, said Klopp.
“He can play all of the offensive positions.”
Firmino has featured in seven of Liverpool’s eight matches in all competitions and has bagged three goals and two assists so far.
Liverpool have made a flying start to their Premier League campaign and has already outplayed big-guns like Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Leicester City and Chelsea. The Reds are fourth on the league table, level on points with Arsenal, who have a better on goal difference. Football pundits have highly placed their bets on Liverpool as one of the main title contenders this season.
