Liverpool youngster Jordon Ibe is a 'new player' under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp, according to Jan Molby. 

Writing for the Liverpool Echo, Molby, who played for the Merseyside outfit for over a decade between 1984 and 1996, claims the club's new boss has 'rescued' the exciting youngster. 

Ibe scored his first goal for the Reds on Thursday evening as Klopp's side secured a victory in Russia against Rubin Kazan in the Europa League.

And Molby has hailed Klopp for his influence on the 19-year-old as he wrote: "When Ibe burst on to the scene, he got people talking and it was clear he has talent, is strong, quick and appears mature beyond his years.

"But then all of a sudden he began to get lost in the games.

"Now, as the player himself said, he is a new player.

"Ibe needed just a few simple instructions to get him back on track, and is now having an impact whether it's from the bench as at Chelsea, or with his impressive winner at Rubin Kazan.

"In some ways, he has been rescued by Jurgen Klopp.

"The winger is positive in his movement now and is always pressing forward, and it's amazing the confidence you can gain from putting opponents on to the back foot."


Despite his age, Ibe is already an important squad player for Liverpool; dynamic and direct, the 19-year-old offers so much to the cause on Merseyside. 

After scoring his first goal for the club on the European scene, there's no reason why he won't be able to go from strength-to-strength over the coming years. 

He certainly has the attributes to both create and score goals on a consistent basis for the club, but his manager must now handle his development correctly.
