Jurgen Klopp believes Roberto Firmino compares to Harry Kane and is as good as the Tottenham forward.
The 24-year-old Brazil international forward has 11 goals and five assists in 24 league games.
Kane has dominated the league in terms of goals, but Klopp believes they share some qualities.
“If you see Harry Kane playing, he is all over the pitch, he is getting the ball deep. Of all the strikers we have in England, they are the most similar – they’re everywhere,” he said, via the Liverpool Echo .
“Harry is more coming from the nine and a little bit on the 10 while Roberto is coming from the 10 and doing a bit more but is also a nine, he’s just so important for us.”
“You realise it the day after the game when you look at the figures and see, ‘wow, what a number of high sprints and high distance runs’,” he said.
“When you look at him in training the next day it’s all good, he walks normal. On the second day of recovery he looks fresh again.
“That makes him so special, he’s always ready. That makes him an interesting package as a football player because he’s not fixed on a position.”
