Liverpool’s Japanese player says that he wants to prove his worth.
didn’t feel like he deserved to be a part ofLiverpool’s
trophy winning squad but he says that he is trying to prove himself as an important player for the club.
He told Liverpool’s official matchday programme:
“It isn't very easy to describe my feelings.
“Of course I was happy but at the same time I only played for the team for half the season and I was quite doubtful I had contributed to the team 100 per cent.
“When I lifted the trophy I was feeling proud but at the same time I thought that I needed to play well throughout a whole season and my aim is to hopefully do that and help the team to lift the trophy again this season.”
And about his life in UK he said:
“I am used to living in the UK now and I have been studying the language as well, although it has been a bit difficult because of the Covid situation.
“I have made very good friends with all the players in the team but I often speak with the players who speak German such as Xherdan Shaqiri, Naby Keita, Sadio Mane and Joel Matip - I have a lot of communication with them.”
Minamino has also talked about Kagawa’s part in his ambitions for playing in the Premier League:
“I was inspired by Shinji Kagawa, who played at Manchester United. The reason for that is that I used to play for a team in Japan that Kagawa used to play for, Cerezo Osaka.
“So we were at the same club and while I was in Japan I watched him playing for United and I also imagined myself playing in the Premier League as well.”
