"It's a really good deal for him one year before his contract expires," Klopp noted, "It's good for him, his club, and us. People have messaged me saying things like 'I've wanted to sign him for years'. There were a lot of positives coming from Germany. He's super highly regarded."
"He's a really good player," Klopp continued, "Experienced. Captain of Stuttgart. Captain of Japan. Speaks English well. Nice guy. Family man. A machine on the pitch. A sensational attitude and a good footballer to boot. I'm really happy. We're going to have a lot of fun with him."
