iverpool striker Roberto Firmino says he’s happy with his role in manager Jurgen Klopp’s setup.
Firmino has dismissed claims he sacrifices himself to allow team-mates Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane flourish.
The Brazilian, 30, has scored 34 Premier League goals since the start of the 2018-19 campaign – 39 fewer than Salah and 22 fewer than Mane.
Speaking to Globo Esporte, Firmino said: “I don’t see it that way.
“Each one has a very well-defined role on the field, it’s a team that has been playing together for some time and we know each other very well.
“We play for each other for Liverpool, and that makes a difference.”
He added: “Besides being an excellent coach, Klopp is a sensational guy, with a huge heart.
“And I can say that, if I’m a better player today, it’s a lot thanks to him. We’ve known each other since German football and, here at Liverpool, we’ve been together for six years.
“Today, I feel comfortable playing in more than one position, I have more freedom to move and also help with marking.”
