Liverpool's Jordan Ibe wants to emulate Robert Lewandowski

Paisley Gateway

The Liverpool youngster is excited to be working under his new manager.

Liverpool teenager Jordan Ibe has been talking to the club’s official website about his new manager Jurgen Klopp’s influence on the young players at Borussia Dortmund.

Ibe may only be 19, but he has already played 31 matches for the Reds including 14 this season, and in time he is set to be a vital player for Klopp.

The German has helped develop some of the best footballers in Europe and that is something Ibe recognises, while also hoping he can one day follow suit.

“The fact that the young players he brought in were a big part of the success is very encouraging for guys like me,” Ibe told liverpoolfc.com.

“Some of them, like Robert Lewandowski, have become players who are operating at the highest level in the Champions League. Hopefully he can help me and some of the lads here do the same.”

Ibe has a long way to go before he is performing at the same level as the free-scoring Bayern Munich forward but there is no doubt he has the talent to ultimately shine on the world stage.

Ibe’s presence at Anfield was one of the main reasons why many Liverpool fans were not particularly sad to see Raheem Sterling move on, and if Klopp continues his habit of turning good players into great ones, the Reds and their supporters could be set for a very exciting future.
