Liverpool’s one of the most hyped summer signings, Roberto Firmino has now stated that Liverpool Football Club was right to sack Brendan Rodgers.
Liverpool bought the brazil international star for £29 million from Hoffenheim this summer.
Roberto Firmino has insisted that it was the right call to sack Brendan Rodgers in favour of Jurgen Klopp.
In an interview with Sky Sports’ Barclays Premier League Weekly, he has said-”It was a short period [under Rodgers] but I considered him a great manager, but I didn’t get much playing time under him.”
”When results don’t come along, it is a must to switch managers.”
The player was in full praise for Jurgen Klopp, he said on Klopp: “I think Klopp has the typical Germany mentality, which I am used to as I played for four years in Germany.”
“I do like Klopp’s German methods, he concentrates and focuses on what he wants. I think he will help us.”
” We are already getting what he wants from us. ”
“He brings good vibes, we are on a positive path and we are always aiming high.”
Firmino added – ”We are already getting what Klopp wants from us. He brings good vibes, we are on a positive path and always aiming high.”
On his development and growth as a footballer, he said -” Thank God I am still developing to this day and I hope to continue in this way.”
The style of football played between Brazil and England is pretty different, says Firmino.
Having played in 3 countries, it’s natural for him to get accustomed to different footballing styles. Explaining how English football is different, he said – ”In Brazil, it is mainly very technical, but it is quite different to England. It doesn’t have the same pace.”
”Football here is quicker, tactical. In Brazil, it is more calm and there is more quality, but both are good.”
