Ex Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has stated that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp should stick with Roberto Firmino.
Wenger while commentating on Liverpool’s loss to Leicester City on Saturday, argued that Firmino is the sort of forward who brings out the best in the players around him.
“I think you have types of strikers like Suarez at Liverpool and now Firmino,” he said.
“You have the kind of striker who makes the wide players good and the kind of strikers who kill the players around them.
“Suarez and Firmino are players who make people around them good.
“You see many strikers who, in Firmino’s position, would have tried to force the shot or to dribble.
“He’s the kind of striker you do not find a lot, they work hard for the team and they make the players around them better.”
He added: “Let’s be honest, you want everything from a player but, what I mean, is I’ve seen many strikers who, when they don’t score, go into the dressing room ready to destroy the team.
“He is always ready to work for the team and puts his body on the line for the others, so I respect that, and he scores goals as well.
“Maybe he’s a bit short of goals but all the rest, you cannot fault him.”
