Roberto Firmino opens up on poor form and Klopp's reaction

Liverpool star Roberto Firmino has provided a very honest account over his performances this season

The Reds attacker gave a very honest account of his performances in which he has scored six goals and provided seven assists.

Firmino also opened up on the difficulties Liverpool have faced while outlining how manager Jurgen Klopp "gets sad and angry" when his side are defeated.

Ahead of the Champions League quarter-final return-leg clash, the Brazil international hopes Liverpool can turn around their fortunes by overcoming a 3-1 deficit against Real Madrid.

"It’s been a difficult season for me," he told ESPN Brazil.

"We have to be sincere, there’s no lack of hope for improvement. My desire is to evolve and grow every day. There’s no lack of motivation for me.

"But I don't give up. I’m always looking to improve to help my team to be better, together with the group. I have to evolve day after day.

"I know the reality. I know that this year we’re not doing well. But we can reverse it. We still have chances to qualify in the Champions League. We have a final against Real Madrid and everything is still open. We will fight until the end."

Firmino discussed how Klopp has been reacting to the Reds' inconsistency this season.

The No.9 added: "He gets sad, he gets angry. Nobody likes to lose, especially him. Our team got used to winning. But, in this difficult time, we have to analyse our negative points and turn them into positive ones. We have to look to always give our best to each game.

"We had an excellent game against Arsenal. We didn’t concede goals, we were solid in defence, we scored three goals and we won.

"Three days later, we lost a very important game for the Champions League. We know that we still have the second game, that there’s nothing won or lost yet. We can reverse the score and come out winners.

"But we know that, especially in the first half against Real Madrid, we were very bad. Fortunately, we managed to score a goal and we have a chance to reverse that."
