Klopp reveals how he changed Coutinho into world class player

Klopp was speaking about the star, and claimed that he’s gone up a level this year – and there’s one thing that’s helped him do so.

Klopp said: “In 2016 he has made the next step for sure. He has been very consistent. I think our style of play fits really well with him.

“We had a few talks about it. Of course with Phil’s skills, everyone wants to give him the ball and wait for something special to happen.

“Then you think “oh no, don’t shoot again”. But if I could shoot like he could shoot then I would try it all the time.

“I’d get up in the morning and just shoot the f***ing ball around in the garden or something. It’s outstanding how good he is.”
