LIVERPOOL midfielder Takumi Minamino held the Guiness World Record for receiving the most high-fives in a minute.

While playing for Cerezo Osaka in his home country of Japan back in 2014, he managed 187 high-fives in just 60 seconds.

He is hoping to break his own world record again in the future

It was enough to claim the world record, but Minamino's benchmark only lasted two years as Kaiser Permanente San Diego racked up 290 in 2016.

Nevertheless, Minamino remembers the event fondly as he recalled it earlier this week.

And he even suggested trying to replicate it in his goal celebration.

He told the Liverpool club website: "Yes, I held the record for the most high-fives in a minute, but I think it has been broken.


"It happened when I played for Cerezo Osaka and it was an event organised by the club for people living in the area, in the town.

"About 200 people queued up in a line in a shopping centre and as I was the youngest player in the team I was chosen to join them.

"I had to run down the line and high-five them and I managed to make the Guinness World Records.

"It is a very good memory and we still talk about it. Maybe it would be good fun if I celebrated a goal for Liverpool like this!"

Minamino hit the headlines on Wednesday night when his stoppage-time equaliser sent the Carabao Cup quarter-final between Liverpool and Leicester to extra-time.

Jurgen Klopp's men then prevailed on penalties as they booked their place in the last four where they will face Arsenal.

And despite Minamino struggling for consistency since arriving at Anfield in January 2020, he remains full of praise when discussing his time at the club so far.

"I have been having a very good time at this club," he added. "It was my childhood dream to play for Liverpool.

"I used to enjoy watching Liverpool matches, and the Premier League is one of the most popular leagues in Japan.

"It was one of my dreams to play in this league so I'm having a really nice time here and I would love to contribute even more.

"Of course the weather here sometimes has too much rain and cloud, but it is OK. English food? I like fish and chips.

"The atmosphere of the city is very good. Because of COVID, I haven't had enough chances to get to know more about England just yet. I would like to discover more things I will like in England in the future."
