Minamino made his Liverpool debut in the FA Cup third-round victory against Everton three weeks ago and was expected to lead the line in the fourth-round bout with League 1 outfit Shrewsbury Town on Sunday. "It was a big step for him - come on". "For nobody, yesterday was a game where you shine and play your best game ever".
"Showing up like he did, not with his skills in different departments of the game, but with his character, mentality - he was fighting like insane, closed gaps, was involved in a lot of situations - it was just a super start".
Minamino is just the ninth Japanese player to play in the Premier League, following Newcastle's Yoshinori Muto, Leicester's Shinji Okazaki and Manchester United's Shinji Kagawa most recently. "But we knew we could keep going, keep fighting".
Klopp has been delighted with Minamino's application since he arrived in a reported £7.25million deal from Salzburg. You saw so many things of his ability last night.
"Unfortunately, we conceded the two goals, I think from the only two chances they had, because I can't remember another chance for Liverpool, to be honest".
"He's completely ready for that and for him, still in a new environment, a new team, he's really adapting and from a tactical point of view it was an outstanding game". We were organised, we created a lot of situations and we kept going.
Speaking in his press conference Klopp added that he wasn't even aware that the victory had put his side 16 points clear at the top of the table.
Speaking after the match Traore repaid the compliment to the Liverpool boss and his team, telling BT Sport, "We don't forget they are a great team, an fantastic team and one of the best or the best in Europe".
"Now we are qualified for the round we want to go through and we know it's a tough place to go, how it always is in cup competitions".
