Jordon Ibe got his first Liverpool goal against Rubin Kazan, much to the delight of manager Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe has said on the club's official website that he is delighted to be working with Jurgen Klopp, after getting his first senior goal for the Reds in a 1-0 win over Rubin Kazan in the Europa League on Thursday night. 

Ibe's winner means Liverpool can qualify with a game to spare if they beat Bordeaux at the end of the month.

The Reds boss was evidently delighted with the 19-year-old after the game, with the manager barely containing his delight for the youngster when asked about his goal.

Ibe told the official Liverpool website: "He's showing me new things in training and obviously training is different now so I'm learning.

"Hopefully I can keep getting the experience I need and he can develop me into a good player.

"Everybody's doing well in training and we're just delighted as a group to be doing well now. Hopefully we can just keep winning games and make it a repetition now."

Klopp had a reputation for being able to put his faith in younger players during his successful spell in charge of Borussia Dortmund, and turning players into superstars. Ibe seems to be a player that Klopp has taken a shine to and there seems to be a good rapport between the manager and the player. 

Prior to Klopp's arrival, Ibe didn't look like the kind of player he was in the second half of last season, when he was confident, taking on players and not taking a step back. He actually looked a little lost, but in recent weeks he seems to have got over that and his display in Russia was one of a maturing performer.

It will be interesting to see how Klopp manages him from here - whether he plays more often from the bench in matches going forward, or if he is prepared to give him the odd starting role in the some of the bigger games.
