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.
