The England international opted to leave Chelsea for Anfield over the summer in an effort to launch his career under one of the finest coaches around

Dominic Solanke considers Jurgen Klopp to be “one of the best managers in the world” and the perfect man to unlock his potential.

The 20-year-old forward moved to Anfield over the summer after opting against a new contract at Chelsea.

Liverpool have landed themselves one of the most highly-rated talents in English football and the winner of the Golden Ball during a successful U20 World Cup campaign for the Young Lions over the summer.

Solanke is determined to make good on the promise he has shown so far and believes he is working under the best coach to get him performing at the peak of his powers.

He told Sky Sports on Klopp: "He's one of the best managers in the world and he's worked with some of the best players in the world as well. When he gives positive feedback, it's warming for me.

"I definitely need that. With me playing my first proper season in the Premier League I know there is a lot to learn."

Solanke has been eased into the fold on Merseyside, with Liverpool wary of asking too much of him too soon.

He has seen just 250 minutes of Premier League football so far, with nine of his 11 appearances having come from the bench.

Solanke was, however, trusted with a starting berth in a derby date with Everton and is confident that he can continue to impress if given the opportunity to do so.

"When you achieve something, you always want to do more," he said.

"When you're not achieving as much as you think you can, it is always something you want to [change] as soon as possible.

"I've just got to try and stay patient and then at the right time it will happen."

Solanke’s next chance could come against Bournemouth on Sunday, with Liverpool heading to the south coast on the back of successive draws on home soil which have dropped them out of the Premier League’s top four.
