Jurgen Klopp: Takumi Minamino fights like a madman

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, said he was amazed by how Takumi Minamino played. For him, the Japanese player fought like a madman in the match against Wolverhampton.

Takumi Minamino was bought by Liverpool from FC Salzburg in January 2020. He was bought after a good performance in the Champions League, including breaking into Liverpool’s goal.

Takumi Minamino transfer prices are quite cheap. Liverpool only need 7.25 million pounds to bring it to Anfield. And, so far the 25-year-old has performed quite satisfactorily for Liverpool.

Takumi Minamino fights like a madman

Takumi Minamino made his debut against Everton in the FA Cup. Then, he was again played when Liverpool won with a score of 1-2 over Wolves in the Premier League’s 24th week.

Takumi Minamino’s Performance Exceeds Expectations

Takumi Minamino played as a substitute in the match against Wolves. He replaces injured Sadio Mane. Jurgen Klopp praised Takumi Minamino’s actions with the word super. Now, Jurgen Klopp again gives praise.

„We have to think about what we did, because he played longer than we thought. Yesterday night was a big step for him,“ Jurgen Klopp was quoted as saying by Sportsmole.

Takumi Minamino played very aggressively in the match against Wolves. He did not hesitate in the duel. In fact, he could have scored, if Mohamed Salah was not selfish and chose to give bait to Takumi Minamino who was in a better position.

„When you enter as a new player in this kind of battle, it comes like, not with his skills but with his mentality and character, fighting like crazy, closing the gap, it is a super start,“ said the German manager.

Will Become a Substitute for Sadio Mane

Since at FC Salzburg, Takumi Minamino has the ability to play in many positions. Of course this factor will be very liked by Jurgen Klopp because he will lose Sadio Mane for the next four weeks due to injury.

„Takumi Minamino is quite flexible and he does what he has to do. I have to see how he reacts to the intensity of the game,“ he said.

„I don‘t know him well enough in that regard, but every game helps. He is a super boy – exactly the player we were hoping for,“ Jurgen Klopp insisted.

Takumi Minamino is predicted to be often played following the injury of Sadio Mane. Because, Xherdan Shaqiri is still injured and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has not performed as expected by Jurgen Klopp.
