Liverpool new boy says club were RIGHT to sack Brendan Rodgers

New Liverpool recruit Roberto Firmino has said that the club were vindicated in their decision to sack former manager Brendan Rodgers, according to the Daily Express.

The divisive Northern Irish tactician was given his Anfield marching orders last month nearly three-and-a-hlf years in charge at the club and spending nearly £300million on signings.

Rodgers was then replaced by former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp, who has made a steady start to his tenure by winning three out of his first seven games in charge.

And Firmino, who was brought in by Rodgers for £29million over the summer, believes that it was poor results that led to his downfall.

“It was a short period [under Rodgers] but I considered him a great manager but I didn’t get much playing time under him,” he said.

“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.”
