Watch: Jurgen Klopp plays trick shot on Roberto Firmino ahead of Augsburg v Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp nutmegs Roberto Firmino during Liverpool's final training session ahead of Augsburg clash

Roberto Firmino may be one of Liverpool’s most naturally gifted players, but the Brazilian has nothing on his manager, Jurgen Klopp.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss is indebted to the South American after the playmaker’s string of impressive performances for the Reds in 2016.

Firmino has already scored five times and has made three assists in nine games so far this year after he moved to Anfield in a £29m deal from Hoffenheim under Klopp’s predecessor, Brendan Rodgers.

But the 24-year-old appears to have a good rapport with the Northern Irishman’s successor judging by Wednesday night’s training session at Augsburg Arena.

Klopp cheekily kicked the ball between Firmino’s legs as the Brazilian warmed up in Germany much to the amusement of the Liverpool manager and his forward.

Liverpool will be hoping to secure a positive result in Augsburg ahead of the second leg of their last-32 tie at Anfield next month.
