Klopp is yet to win a trophy with the Merseyside giants, but the club are expected to challenge for the Premier League title this season after recently finishing as runners-up in both the Europa League and Champions League.
Firmino has established himself as one of Klopp’s key men, and the attacker feels that he continues to improve as a player under the guidance of the German.
The Brazil international told the club’s official website: “We’ve been doing well, we made a good start under him and we’re dreaming big. We want to keep working hard and win trophies. We’ve only been working together for three years, but it seems like it’s been longer.
“I’m very happy under him and think he’s an incredible coach. I’ve learnt so much from him and that doesn’t only apply to me, but to the whole team. I think he’s excellent.
“I’ve been learning a lot from Klopp ever since he came in. He’s brought everything together and got that across to the team. We’re doing that well now.”
Liverpool sit level on points with Premier League leaders Manchester City ahead of the encounter between the clubs on Sunday.
