While speaking about his relationship with the manager, the Liverpool star said:
“The manager? Incredible! That’s a single word you can use for him from the short time we’ve spent working together. He’s a very humble, down-to-earth person, very calm.
‘He tries to ensure all his players are happy, and for me that’s very important. At the start, I think it was more about him telling me what I’ve been doing up to now.
“He was trying to put across to me that all it was about was for me to keep doing what I’ve been used to.
“He wanted me to know that I’d been performing very well up to now and that I should just try to keep on doing more of the same.
“To play my football with joy and happiness, while obviously incorporating the preferred tactical plans and instructions into my game.”
