Roberto Firmino wants to add to last season's Champions League success with more trophies
Liverpool’s number 9, Bobby Firmino, says he wants to keep improving his own game while adding to The Reds’ recent trophy haul as soon as possible.
Firmino was speaking to Premier League Productions when he was asked how his game has changed since signing for The Reds in 2015.
“I think I improved a lot in every way: physically, tactically, mentally, I learned a bit of every aspect.
“But I do not want to stop here. I want to keep improving – I always want more, I have big goals, I want to keep winning titles with this club and that is it.”
The Brazilian international was quizzed about his seemingly endless selflessness on the pitch for The Reds, laying on 8 assists in the league so far this season.
“That is just me, my personality, to try to be a good and humble guy.
“To try to help my team in the best way with assists and goals. I like that, I like to win all the time, and for that, I will always be like this.
“I am a guy who respects my position on the pitch. Where the team needs me, I will play. As a No.9, but sometimes I play as a No.10, and I try to give my best.
“As I mentioned before, I always want to help my team as best as I can and to always be chasing the win, always winning games. That is what matters the most.”
Finally, Firmino had some strong words of praise for Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, praising the job the former Borussia Dortmund manager has done since his arrival on Merseyside.
“I am never tired of praising Klopp.
“He has so many good things on and off the pitch. He really helps us on a daily basis, we learn so much from him in every way.
“He is able to have the team with him. We have been doing things well and learning a lot from him, and we have been showing on the pitch that we can grow more and more each day and do our best.”
Firmino and his Reds teammates return to Premier League action away to Crystal Palace this Saturday at 3pm.
