Klopp has outlined how thrilled he was with the first Premier League showing of January signing Minamino, following the 25-year-old's substitute appearance against Wolves.
"Yesterday was a big step for him, a game like this game wasn't for anyone to shine or make a name," Klopp said.
"Showing up like he did not with his skills but with his mentality, he was fighting like crazy and closed gaps.
"It was was a super start. [He's] exactly the player we expected to get, super boy and super player.
"It was a proper fight and he was ready. just the player we wanted and now he's ours."
