Since returning from a short loan at Southampton last season, one individual he’s impressed is current manager Klopp.
Ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Brentford on Saturday, Klopp has showered Minamino in praise and highlighted his loan stint as a significant boost to his development.
He said: “[Minamino] is an outstanding talent. Everything was difficult when he joined, and you need to get used to the Premier League.
“It helped massively going to Southampton and he came back a different player and a different package. Players need time. He used that time, and that is good.”
