Reports suggest Minamino's time at Anfield could be coming to an end, with Monaco a potential destination, and his comments on how much he has struggled at the club make a move away seem extremely likely.
“Many of the games I played weren't of interest to anyone," Minamino told Sanspo.
“Even if I left the results, there wasn't much response. I was trying to inspire myself to prove my worth. I was doing personal training other than team training.
“I was thinking that I would leave something behind when I went to the match mentally. I felt motivated by regret and anger every day. I've never had this much time as a player. It was difficult to maintain the condition and connect with my feelings.
“But it was a season that seemed to have grown. It was disappointing but fulfilling. At the same time, it makes sense to play an important game and leave a result, so it is said that I got out and got a result, but I do not think it was a big deal.
“I want to do my best to be a player who can produce results in important games."
