The Reds manager made it clear that his first match was a big step for the player...

We have to think about what we do, because he played much longer than we thought. Yesterday night was a big step for him. For nobody was it a game where you shine and play your best game ever. When you come in as a new player in this kind of battle, showing up like he did, not with his skills but with his mentality and character, fighting like crazy, closing gaps, it was a super start. He’s pretty versatile and he did exactly what he had to do. I have to see how he reacted to the intensity to that game. I don’t know him long enough in that regard, but each game helps.

Klopp expressed his happiness with the Japanese' performan

He’s a super boy, exactly the player we expected. You saw so much of his ability against Wolves. As a footballer you can’t only play on the days when everything is clicking, scoring two goals, all that stuff. This game was a proper fight and he was completely ready for that. A new team, adapting, and from a tactical point it was an outstanding game. In training we see the finishing and the creating. He’s the player we wanted and now he’s ours.
