Liverpool: Takumi Minamino backed to stay at Anfield

Liverpool: Takumi Minamino backed to stay at Anfield -Liverpool News

Takumi Minamino could remain at Liverpool this summer if he is happy playing a squad role, according to former England international Paul Robinson.

The Lowdown: Impressive season for Taki

The Japanese gem has found it difficult to force his way into Jurgen Klopp’s plans this season but he has still managed to have a significant impact.

Minamino has managed to score ten goals in all competitions, including seven in the domestic cups, certainly playing his part in Liverpool’s trophy haul.

The 27-year-old’s Reds future is up in the air ahead of the summer transfer window, however, and it remains to be seen if he will stay put or not.

The Latest: Forward backed to stay

Speaking to Football Insider, Sky Sports pundit Robinson claimed the decision will ultimately lie with the player, saying he could remain at Anfield:

“It really depends on Minamino’s ambition. If he is happy playing a bit-part role then he will stay. Klopp won’t want him to leave.

“That squad is challenging on every front possible. There is not better place to be if you want to be part of the squad.  If he wants to play football week in, week out then you suspect he will leave.

“Klopp is starting to rejuvenate that squad but I still think there is a squad role for Minamino next season.

“Listen, if he is happy to sit on the bench every week and play now and then it is a manager’s dream. His future will be determined by personal ambition.”

The Verdict: Keep hold of him

Truly great sides may be littered with world-class players but they also need excellent fringe heroes – individuals who chip in from time to time and provide the depth required to challenge across all competitions.

Minamino has been exactly that this season, as highlighted by his goalscoring record, and he has been hailed as an ‘incredible’ technical player by Jurgen Klopp.

For that reason, it would be preferable for Liverpool to keep hold of him, although if he wants to leave it would be hard to begrudge him a move elsewhere.
