at the start of 2020 and has never found his chances limited at Anfield.

Southampton manager

Ralph Hasenhuttl

said that he had discussed Minamino’s potential with

Jurgen Klopp

and has backed him to follow in the footsteps of fellow Merseyside loanee Theo Walcott.

“I spoke with Jurgen,” he said. "He said he didn’t have the chance to give Minamino enough time to play. I’m sure when he played, he did good games and scored a few goals.

“He’s a very special player for me - not because of his physical strength but more of his way of playing football. He is very quick in his mind, has good decision-making, knows about our pressing style, and hopefully a lot of running.

“He knows when you come to me you have to run a lot, but that’s not a problem for him. Although he didn’t play a lot in the past games, he’ll also need time to step up - but we had a good experience with Theo, who helped us immediately, and hopefully, he does the same.”
