Takumi Minamino (南野 拓実, Minamino Takumi, born 16 January 1995) is a Japanese football player who plays as a forward for Austrian club FC Red Bull Salzburg.

Club career

Minamino made 62 J. League Division 1 appearances for Cerezo Osaka, playing alongside Diego Forlán, but the team were relegated in his final season. FC Red Bull Salzburg tracked him for a year and a half before signing him on 7 January 2015, on a contract running until 2018 with the option of a further year.[1]

He made his European debut on 26 February, playing the first half of a 1–3 home defeat (2–5 aggregate) to Villarreal in the second leg of the last 32 of the UEFA Europa League before being replaced by Felipe Pires.[2]

During the 2017-18 season Salzburg had their best ever European campaign. They finished top of their Europa League group, for a record fourth time, before beating Real Sociedad and Borussia Dortmund thus making their first ever appearance in the UEFA Europa League semi-final.[3] On 3 May 2018, he played in the Europa League semi-finals as Olympique de Marseille played out a 1–2 away loss but a 3–2 aggregate win to secure a place in the 2018 UEFA Europa League Final[4]

National team career

In June 2011, Minamino was elected Japan U-17 national team for 2011 U-17 World Cup. He played 4 matches and scored a goal against New Zealand.

Minamino made his debut for Japan national team in a friendly against Iran on 13 October 2015, coming as a substitute in 83rd minute.[5]

In August 2016, Minamino was elected Japan U-23 national team for 2016 Summer Olympics. He played all 3 matches and scored a goal against Nigeria.
