Jurgen Klopp on Liverpool plan for Takumi Minamino and qualities he will bring to side

Jurgen Klopp spoke out on Liverpool's new signing Takumi Minamino as the Reds are getting ready for Boxing Day. After becoming Club World Cup champions, Liverpool are preparing to face Leicester City at King Power Stadium in the Premier League on December 26. Ahead of the game, Klopp gave a press-conference, where he was asked about their new signing Minamino. "We will see. All the things we know about Takumi fit very well to us," said Klopp, when he was asked about what he expects to see from Minamino. "His football skills first and foremost. Decision making in tight areas. "His speed. His desire to win a ball back in counter-press, he's used to that because Salzburg has a similar philosophy that we have. "That's all really good. But then we have to see: how will he adapt when he finally comes over and we are allowed to work with him? How can we put him in? "But in the long term there's no doubt that he will help us. That's clear." Takumi Minamino will officially become Liverpool player on January 1st. source - LiverpoolECHO
