Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was pleased with Takumi Minamino’s performance in their FA Cup win against Cardiff City.
The Japan international struck in Sunday’s 3-1 FA Cup win.
Klopp later said, “Taki obviously was very successful with Japan.
“Before he left he was successful with us, so he is in a really good moment. Played today a really good game, scored a wonderful goal. He came back early, he could have stayed a little bit longer away if he would have wanted to. With his outstanding attitude he wanted to be back quicker, that’s why we could line him up today, a very good option for us. Yeah, he is in a very good moment, thank God.”
He also said, “Today, in this moment, it looks like they are all fit – even Divock Origi trained last week with the team. He was not ready for the squad yet but is in full training from now on, so yes that’s positive. But again, that’s this moment, let’s see what kind of news I get tomorrow and from there we go. We play Thursday against Leicester, we play Sunday against Burnley and then Champions League and all this kind of stuff, so the games are coming really thick and fast and we have to be ready for that.
“The more players we have fit and available, the better it is, but that doesn’t win football games because other teams have good squads as well, so you have then to do the right stuff on the pitch – and that’s what we have to do.”
