Liverpool midfielder Pedro Chirivella has picked out the two most impressive players at Anfield and says Jurgen Klopp’s style of play is captivating.
Klopp’s Liverpool are streets ahead of the rest in the Premier League and looking to overturn a 1-0 deficit in their Champions League last-16 tie against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night.
Chirivella has been elevated into the first-team squad and the 22-year-old has made seven cup appearances this season.
The Valencia-born player was asked about the most impressive players at Anfield and his answer was predictable.
“All of them in general (impress),” he added.
“But if I really had to choose it would be Firmino or Van Dijk, who is a physical beast. They are two incredible players,” he told Onda Cero via Sport Witness.
Chirivella, who admits the loss in Spain last month was a “shock”, also maintains that charismatic boss Jurgen Klopp does not put on am act for the media.
There have been suggestions that the German coach puts on a media-savvy version of himself in front of the camera, but Chirivella says that is not the case.
“I train with Klopp every day,” he added.
“He’s as you see on TV. A coach with a lot of character and a style that captivates players, That’s reflected in the season we’re having.”
