Jordon Ibe: Why I feel like a new player under Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp
Liverpool star Jordon Ibe says the Reds squad feel fresh after Jurgen Klopp took over the reins last month
Jordon Ibe says he feels like a new player under Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
The 48-year-old took over the reins at Anfield last month after the Reds opted to sack Northern Irishman Brendan Rodgers.
I feel like a new player and it’s for me to keep improving and trying to stand out in training. I feel good – the whole team are feeling great and fresh
Ibe has been used sparingly by the German in his opening four games in charge, making his only start in a 1-0 League Cup win against Bournemouth.
But the England Under-21 international is feeling fresh like the rest of the Liverpool squad as they become accustomed to Klopp’s methods.
“There is a lot of learning in training,” Ibe told talkSPORT.
“There are times when we are watching and he is explaining something. We have quite a few meetings where he shows us things on video from previous games. It’s great to learn and I’m enjoying it.
“Everything is fresh. I feel like a new player and it’s for me to keep improving and trying to stand out in training. I feel good – the whole team are feeling great and fresh.
“We’ve won two games, so it’s still new. We just need to win a few more now and I am sure that mentality and confidence will come where we think, ‘We can go there and beat them.'”
The former Borussia Dortmund manager secured his first Premier League win as Liverpool boss after a 3-1 victory over defending champions Chelsea on Saturday.
