Ex-Liverpool striker Takumi Minamino: I'm very excited about Monaco challenge


Former Liverpool striker Takumi Minamino is excited about his move to AS Monaco.

The Japan international departed Liverpool this summer after two-and-a-half years with the club to join the Ligue 1 side. The deal is worth an initial £12.9m with a potential £2.5m in add-ons.

He said: "It's a new challenge for me, a new team, a new country, a new championship: Ligue 1. I am very excited about the idea to join the team.

"I watched a few matches last season. I know the team a little bit. Monaco has had a good run in the Champions League, until the semi-finals I believe (in 2017).

"With players like Kylian Mbappe or even Fabinho."
