Liverpool January signing Cody Gakpo has admitted that he doesn’t know Jurgen Klopp’s long-term plan amid uncertainty over his current role in the Liverpool tactical set-up.

The Netherlands international joined Liverpool in January for a reported £35.4m and has proven to be an intelligent addition. This comes after struggling in his first few games.

The forward has scored four goals since his move to Anfield, including two against Manchester United, a record 7-0 win. But despite his improved form, Liverpool have struggled to win games in recent weeks and are now on a run of four games without a win.

Speaking to the press, Gakpo has discussed his side’s poor run of form and their upcoming game against league leaders Arsenal. Although the forward admitted that things are not going how Liverpool wants, he insisted on looking at the positives of the recent performances.

“I think if you see this game [against Chelsea], we got a point here, and it is a small step in the right direction, and for me, it is something for the club to get some momentum again and start winning games again,” he said.

“Obviously, when you don’t have support from the home crowd, it’s slightly different, but I don’t know. We just have to be better in the away games. We wanted to win here, but in the end, we made a step in the right direction if you compare it to the last game, so we have to keep building on that and improve.”

Gakpo also spoke about the uncertainty around his best position in the team. The 23-year-old has recently played as a number nine but admitted that he’s tactically unsure where his future lies.

“I have played almost every game in that central position, and for me, it is just about getting used to that position. I don’t know the long-term plan. You will have to ask the manager,” he added.

“For sure [Firmino has helped], Bobby is an amazing player and person. He tries to help me where I can, and I really appreciate that. I like to be here and having a good time.”
