(Video) Heartwarming moment as Takumi Minamino removes his glove in order to shake Steven Gerrard’s hand

Posted by

Takumi Minamino showed a level of respect toward Steven Gerrard that will melt the heart of most Liverpool fans.

Our No.18 went toward our former captain and ensured that he removed his right glove before shaking hands with the Aston Villa boss.

The Japanese international came on as a late substitution for Sadio Mane and will be relishing the increased opportunity for game time over the congested festive period.

The moment between the two followed the 41-year-old saluting the Kop in response to his name being sung, as he then shook the hand of James Milner and Joel Matip.

It was an emotional return for a true club legend but thankfully, Jurgen Klopp’s side finished the day with all three points after a well-taken Mo Salah penalty.

It’s great to see that our fans and players all share a huge amount of respect for our former No.8.
