Roberto Firmino has been Danny Ings' role model for months and the Englishman reveales why.
“From the moment I started training back with the lads, I tried to learn every day – especially from Bobby.
He is a fantastic player with the way he plays and the amount of work he does for the team, not just on the ball but off the ball as well. They are the things I have to look at and learn from, and that’s what I did over the months I was out.
Being back training with them every day, you get used to the patterns the manager wants and the intensity he wants. I’m learning every day from all the lads here and trying to be the best player I can be.”
Neither Ings nor Klopp considered a loan move for the Englishman in January. “I wanted to try to be a part of it with the lads here and get minutes,” explained the man himself.
“After that long period out and all the hard work I didn’t want to give up. It’s such a great club and a great team, it’s all I wanted to be part of,” he said. “Going into the back end of the season now, I know that if I work hard enough I can get some more minutes and try to contribute to the team as much as I can. I’m looking forward to it.”
Danny Ings on making his Champions League Debut:
Ings "It was one of those things where you watch it as a kid and have a dream of playing in the competition."
Ings "So to come on and make my debut was a huge moment for me. I was very, very happy. But the most important thing was the 5-0 win - away at Porto, it's a huge result."
Ings "To be part of this group in a competition like that is huge for me, from the levels that I've come from over the years."
Ings "It was a huge moment but something I want to build on. I want to stay around it with the lads and try to win as many games as we can and see how far we can go in the competition."

Steve Sidwell has suggested that Stoke City's English goalkeeper Jack Butland could be the player to resolve Liverpool's goalkeeping situation.
Liverpool have been linked to a summer move for Roma's Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson, but Sidwell believes that there may be a better option closer to home.
“You have to look at Butland,” Sidwell said on the Sky Sports show The Debate. “He is definitely up there. If he went to a top club, he could be there for the next eight or ten seasons.”
He would probably be a much cheaper option for Liverpool than Alisson, who is valued at £70m. Sky sources in Italy say that discussions are under way for the Roma keeper, but the Italian club will not let their number one leave without a struggle.
Do you agree or Loris has proved he could be our No. 1 next season?
