News From Liverpool: Liverpool fans single out “massive” Takumi Minamino role in FA Cup success

It has been a quiet end to the season for Minamino, whose last appearance came off the bench in the 1-0 win at Nottingham Forest on March 20.

The 27-year-old has only made the matchday squad in three of the last 13 games, and was again left out entirely as Liverpool took on Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

He was still part of the celebrations, though, lifting his second trophy of the season and his third since joining the club in 2020.

This season is likely to be Minaminos last on Merseyside, with a permanent move expected in the summer, but he has undoubtedly played his role in the push for four trophies.

In fact, when it comes to the domestic cups the Japan international has been pivotal, with four goals and one assist in five games in the League Cup and three goals in four outings in the FA Cup.

No Liverpool player scored more goals than Minamino in either competition, and after Saturdays triumph, fans were eager to praise his contribution.
