Many Liverpool fans blasted midfielder Takumi Minamino on the back of their side’s 1-1 draw against FC Midtjylland on Wednesday.
The Reds had already qualified for the Last 16 of the Champions League and Jurgen Klopp opted to go with a side that was evenly intertwined with first-team regulars and youth players.
After the full-time whistle, FBRef (via Anfield Watch) recorded that the Japan international made 37 pressures during the game, which was the most that any Liverpool player has accumulated in the past two games.
Should Takumi Minamino be given more time in the Liverpool first team?
With this in mind, supporters were heavily critical towards the Japanese playmaker once more, with some even suggesting that he should be sold during the next transfer window.
Fans not impressed with Minamino
He’s not good enough. Our fans really need to come to grips with that

Tbf, he just keeps running everywhere trying to pressure but he never gets the ball. A finger is enough to push him away. Everytime, I see a kid strolling around the pitch.

I remain unconvinced 🤨 by minamino..I’ll happily be proved wrong but not sure he’s gonna cut it in this team !!

He applies about as much “pressure” as a fly landing on your leg
