Jürgen Klopp raves about Roberto Firmino

Jürgen Klopp enjoyed the record victory in the sunshine. “9-0 is a crazy result. It doesn’t happen that often,” said the Liverpool manager after the demonstration against Bournemouth AFC. “Combined with the weather we had today, it will probably never happen again.”

In the English Premier League, Liverpool have never won so high. Only Manchester United (against Ipswich Town and Southampton FC) and Leicester City (at Southampton FC) also won 9-0. “We’re in a really good mood,” he said.

“We wanted to be ourselves”

The possibly unique experience against the overwhelmed climber has impressed the German coach. “We wanted to show a reaction, to be ourselves. We wanted to be the best version of ourselves,” explained the former Bundesliga coach.

After the false start with two points from three games and the 1: 2 in the rain at archrival Manchester United, his professionals shot away the frustration of the past few weeks. The British newspaper The Times described it as “from catastrophe to carnival”. “Everything was pretty much perfect,” said Klopp.

“Perfect football afternoon for us”

The 55-year-old didn’t have any doubts about his team despite their mixed performances in the new season. Even if there are always failures or suspensions and Sadio Mané’s departure to FC Bayern hurts. “You have to turn a few other screws, that’s our job,” he explained – with the goal gala against Bournemouth as the result. “We all know we needed something like this,” said Klopp. “It was a perfect football afternoon for us.”

Former Hoffenheimer Roberto Firmino played a large part in this with two goals and three assists. “He makes the difference for us,” said the Liverpool coach and raved about the “outstanding” Brazilian: “Top, top.” Another Bundesliga star could play on Merseyside next year. There is said to be an oral agreement with Dortmund’s top midfielder Jude Bellingham.
