Some Liverpool fans have been reacting positively to the news that Southampton won’t sign Takumi Minamino permanently this summer.
The Reds are preparing for Saturday’s visit of Aston Villa as they look to bounce back from their 3-1 defeat away to Real Madrid in midweek.
Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have struggled badly for form and it has played a part in Liverpool’s struggles in defending their Premier League title. The decision to loan out Minamino to Southampton in January felt an odd one at the time, with some left unhappy over the decision.
The Japanese forward has scored two goals in six appearances to date for Saints, but their manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has said that he is unlikely to sign the 26-year-old on a permanent deal at the end of the season.
