Roberto Firmino has said it was a ‘must’ that Liverpool sacked Brendan Rodgers because of poor results.
The Brazilian – signed in the summer for £22m from Hoffenheim – says he is appreciating the ‘German methods’ of new manager Jurgen Klopp.
“It was a short period [under Rodgers] but I considered him a great manager but I didn’t get much playing time under him,” Firmino told Sky Sports’ Barclays Premier League Weekly.
“When results don’t come along, it is a must to switch managers.
“I think Klopp has the typical Germany mentality, which I am used to as I played for four years in Germany.
“I do like his 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 has started Liverpool victories over Chelsea, Rubin Kazan and Bournemouth under Klopp.
