Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised Takumi Minamino for his performance against Norwich City.
Japan international star Minamino, who can play as an attacking midfielder or as a winger, scored both the goals for Liverpool in their 2-1 win in the fifth round of the FA Cup against Premier League rivals Norwich.
The 27-year-old scored first in the 27th minute and then on 39 minutes, and manager Klopp was impressed.
Klopp told Liverpool’s official website about Minamino: “His impression was obvious with scoring two goals and not only that – he had a lot more top, top football moments.
“He was a constant threat tonight, he was mobile, he was quick. He was technically on an incredibly high level; it was really windy tonight and when you then saw how he controlled the balls when he had to bring down the high balls, that was all really, really, really good.
“I’m not surprised, I know how good he is and tonight he showed it to the public again, which is absolutely great.”
Liverpool will return to action on Saturday evening when they take on West Ham United at Anfield in the Premier League.
The Reds can be backed at 6/1 on Betfair to win the game against West Ham 2-0.
