“He’s really flying. I didn’t see his goal because I was in the changing room [against Hertha] but I heard it was a good goal,” Wijnaldum told

“He has settled in really well. He’s not only a great player but also a great person, and that makes it easier for him but also for us to accept him.

“Since the moment he came here, he felt free to be himself. It’s a good thing for us,’’ the Dutchman concluded.

Klopp’s men will complete their preparations against Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the Audi Cup semi-finals on Tuesday August 1, before facing Spanish side Athletic Bilbao at Anfield on Saturday, August 5.
