Sheyi Ojo has disclosed Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s advice that inspired his goal in their 3-2 victory over Tranmere Rovers on Tuesday evening.

The 21-year-old forward assisted Rafael Camacho for the opening goal before he got the second for the Anfield outfit to help the Reds to a second preseason victory.

Reflecting on his effort in the encounter, the youngster who spent last season in the English Championship on loan with Fulham has credited his boss for the impressive display.

“I was on the right wing and the manager always talks about being aggressive, being direct,” Ojo told Echo.

“It was a good one-v-one opportunity and I was trying to get some space and managed to get the shot off and score the goal.”

The former Wolverhampton Wanderers man will be looking to continue the impressive form in Liverpool’s next encounter with Bury on Saturday.
