Former Red Bull Salzburg assistant coach Gerhard Struber says that Takumi Minamino will be a “very, very big advantage for Liverpool”.

Struber, who is currently a manager at Barnsley, has worked with Minamino at Salzburg and considers it as a pleasure.

Speaking with, Struber said: “I think he’ll be a very, very big advantage for Liverpool. His style is very close to the style of what Liverpool play.”

Later on he added: “The difficult thing is he’s top in one-on-one situations for dribbling and he’s also good in combinations. I think it’s a very big task for every defender.

“I think the only solution we had was to give him no space and no time. And maybe foul at the right time!

“He’s a human with a big heart. I think he also has very, very big technical skills. In the opponent’s box he has a big nose for goals. He has the technical skills in both feet. He can break the rhythm in a game in the offense.

“He can lure the opponent and on the next step he can break the rhythm in the next level with the tempo of the pass and the tempo with his speed.”
