“I believe I am living one of the best phases of my career and I owe much to the trust that the club has placed in me from the beginning.

“The arrival of Jurgen Klopp was very important for my growth within the team. Since he arrived here at Liverpool, he has changed my positioning, put me playing as a forward and that was the watershed for me here at the club.

“Klopp is a fantastic guy. I rate him as an extremely professional coach, a perfectionist, with a winning mentality.

“He came to Liverpool after building a beautiful history in Borussia Dortmund and has done a beautiful job here in England. I’m sure Klopp will be marked in the history of world football for his work and achievements.”
