Mark Lawrenson has credited Jurgen Klopp with improving six players at Liverpool FC.

The Reds turned to Klopp following Brendan Rodgers’ dismissal at Liverpool FC back in October 2015.

The Merseyside outfit have made progress under the former Borussia Dortmund head coach.

Klopp has been credited with improving some of Liverpool FC’s underperforming stars since taking over the reins.

The 47-year-old has got the best out of Brazilian forward Roberto Firmino, with the South American netted 26 goals in all competitions this term.

Loris Karius has rewarded his manager’s faith with steady performances in the Liverpool FC goal despite an unconvincing start.

Klopp took a gamble on Arsenal star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Hull City defender Andy Robertson and AS Roma forward Mohamed Salah last summer.

The Egypt international has netted 43 times in all competitions, while Oxlade-Chamberlain and Robertson have blossomed into key players.

Former Liverpool FC defender Lawrenson praised Klopp for getting the best out of his Reds squad.

“Klopp can improve players too,” Lawrenson told Paddy Power.

“That’s what he’s been doing in his time at Liverpool – he’s made Mane better, he’s made Salah better, he’s made Firmino, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Robertson better, all of a sudden the keepers look better. It’s the sign of a really top manager.

“From his time at Dortmund, he doesn’t get angry about players if they want to move on. He knows that one day there’ll be a phonecall that some bigger team wants one of his players. He’ll have been sickened losing players to Bayern Munich, but he just got on with it.”
