Some say that AS Monaco (France) recruited Minamino Takumi (28) for marketing aimed at Asia.
Minamino moved to Monaco from Liverpool (England) in June last year.
In 2015, he moved to Red Bull Salzburg (Austria) and started his European career, and led the team at Red Bull Salzburg, playing with Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) and Elling Holland (Manchester City).
Since then, all three have made it to the big leagues. Hwang Hee-chan and Holland went to England after going through the German Bundesliga, and Minamino went directly to England. But the results are quite different.
Haaland is bombing the Premier League, and Hwang Hee-chan is competing for a starting spot but remains in England. But Minamino eventually left.
As the time to heat the bench increased, he moved to Southampton on loan in 2021, but his performance here was insufficient, and there was no place for him in Liverpool, who eventually returned. In particular, ahead of the Qatar World Cup, Minamino, who was important to play to maintain a sense of the game, risked his life and death to transfer, and eventually succeeded in transferring to Monaco.
However, even after his transfer, he has not been able to perform well. He only scored 1 goal in 17 appearances. His score is the first and last since last September.
As the failure continued in Monaco, the local media also did not give a very good response. The influential French media ‘L’Equipe’ evaluated on the 8th (Korean time), “The reason Monaco recruited Minomino is for marketing to pioneer the Asian market.”
“He has no outstanding performances. He didn’t fit into the team and didn’t make an impression.” 슬롯사이트
