Pundit claims Klopp in crunch Firmino talks, with Liverpool Community Shield role a massive signal

  Pundit claims Klopp in crunch Firmino talks, with Liverpool Community Shield role a massive signal One observer has claimed that Liverpool are in crunch talks with Roberto Firmino following his display in the Community ShieldThe Brazilian has played a vital role throughout manager Jurgen Klopp’s tenure but now his influence is under scrutiny. He has one year left on his contract and, unlike elsewhere in Liverpool’s front line, he has been largely out of the spotlight.

Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool forward Luis Diaz is capable of scoring between 15 and 20 goals this season as he looks to fill the void left by Sadio Mane.

Diaz joined Liverpool in January from Porto in January and he impressed towards the end of last season.

He will now be expected to supply goals along with the likes of Mohamed Salah and Darwin Nunez after Mane departed to join Bayern Munich.

“Oh definitely, that is his quality. We need to see but of course that is his potential,” said Klopp when asked about whether Diaz could score 10 to 15 goals this season.

 Bundesliga: Mane worked for this jersey Before Sadio Mane himself became a world star, FC Bayern Munich watched the new addition to El Hadji Diouf and Ronaldinho as a child and even made extra shifts. "You were my idols. These were outstanding players. I watched videos of you for hours and tried to do everything," said Mane in an interview with the club's own magazine of FC Bayern.

“We work on it but not with Luis specifically – we don’t take him out because the other two scored and he didn’t so we show him how. That’s not necessary.

“It’s not a problem. You can’t force it. We spoke last week about people asking ‘How can you play without Sadio?’ when in November/December everybody was thinking about when he would score the next goal. You just let it go.

“You see the situations he had (against Fulham), big chances, and he was just unlucky. He is in a really good shape and that is more important.

“It’s not that I tell him after a game, ‘You should have scored here or there’. The boys know that in the moment. It happens. It’s a normal process.

“The way we play should help strikers, the way we play should help the last line of defenders because everyone is involved.

“That is also a little bit why midfielders are seen as not scoring enough, because they are involved in keeping everything together. The potential is there for sure.”

Klopp admits Diaz is not a like-for-like replacement for Mane, who scored 120 goals in 269 matches and has been on target in his first two matches for his new club.

He also knows the team have to adapt to a new way of working with the forward.

“He improved definitely with understanding what we are doing but that then leads to strange situations as well because we want to be flexible on the wings and that means he has to be slightly more inside, but then you realise it’s good for him if he stays longer on the outside.

“We have to get used to that and that will help, but unfortunately a learning process never happens overnight.

“He obviously has the quality and the potential. He just needs one goal and then we will go from there.”
