And it turns out the Japanese international has already scored against our biggest rivals, while playing for Cerezo Osaka back in his homeland six years ago!
The game was only a friendly, but it’s nice to know he knows how to find the back of the net against the Red Devils…

Minamino will become the first ever Japanese player to represent us, and we can’t wait to have him.
Here is a list of his best attributes and why Jurgen Klopp decided to take the plunge:
-Minamino is rapid – he’s not only fast with the ball at his feet, but without it – a necessity of any Klopp player
-He has over 20 goals/assists for Rb Salzburg this term, showing he provides consistent end product
-Minamino’s versatility is exceptional. This term, he’s played in midfield, as a no.10, on the flank and as a false-9
-At 24, Minamino is the perfect age to settle in and reach the next level. Klopp loves buying players who are just under 25 but have already played plenty of football. Minamino has over 200 appearances to his name already
-The playmaker has a brilliant injury history. In fact, he hasn’t missed a game injured since the 2017/18 season
