Klopp officially reveals when Minamino joins the squad
“Look at our situation, I understand the question but how can you ask me in the moment when we have 14 adult players?
“I would be happy if he was half as good as he is if he could be here now in this moment and could help us.
“That’s all good, we will see how quick it goes. The ways in which we play are not too different, there are a lot of things which he has learned already at Salzburg. That makes it so good for us, actually.
“We have a lot of patterns on the game which are different to what Salzburg are doing. So, offensively, when you speak about what he is used to, it is more or less defensively. He is an offensive player, so offensively how can we bring him into a situation that he feels completely comfortable and to use the things instinctively and not because we told him?
“That’s what we speak every year about when we say, ‘Why he is not already in?’ all the time and stuff like this. There is no pressure, there is absolutely no pressure when he is coming in January.
“This team is not struggling without him, so what we want is extra quality with him, different quality with him and a really, really good player.” Jurgen Klopp spoke to Goal.com
