Jurgen Klopp explains Minamino's role at Liverpool


Jurgen Klopp has revealed how his new signing Takumi Minamino  can help Liverpool in the long run

Minamino caught Klopp's eye after his impressive performance in their two Champions League Group stage encounter.

After winning the Champions League last season, Klopp refrained from doing a major business in the summer transfer window.

However, the German faith in his Champions League winners has been rewarded this term by a record breaking start to the Premier League campaign with the Reds currently enjoying a 10 point lead at the top of the table.

Despite huge faith on his current squad, Klopp believe swooping for Minamino was too good an opportunity to ignore, especially given the player's versatility.

"It is a little bit not reshaping [the squad] but Taki is for sure a player who can help us immediately, in the short term, in the long term and from an age perspective," Klopp told ESPN FC.

"He's already really good as everyone could see when we played them in Salzburg but still  there is potential there to become even better, which is good.

"You need always not only fresh legs because you play every three days, but you need fresh legs to keep everyone on their toes. That's not a competition, it's just to have different options in different moments.

"He's a really exciting player and it was good we played them so each Liverpool supporter could see that’s a proper player.

"He is is a type of player we need. He can play all offensive positions which is good. Maybe can play as an eight as well.

"He is a sensationally good guy, he is smart he speaks really good German and will learn English quick and I'm really looking forward to it."

Liverpool swiftly agreed a £7.5million fee to get Minamino's signature on book on Thursday morning but the player can only debut for the Reds in January.
