Mignolet has Liverpool transfer message for boss Jurgen Klopp
Belgian stopper Simon Mignolet has told Jurgen Klopp that he is not thinking about leaving Liverpool, after finding himself on the bench this season.
Mignolet came under intense criticism for some of his performances in a Liverpool shirt last season after failing to impress both his boss and fans that he was good enough to be the clubs number one ahead of Loris Karius.
And while Karius decided to leave in the summer to get some regular game time, Mignolet decided to stay and fight for his Liverpool future, despite the fact Klopp spend big to land Roma stopper Alisson for £67 million, which was a record fee for a goalkeeper before Chelsea signed Kepa for £71 million.
The Brazilian has immediately claimed the No. 1 spot after joining from the Seria A giants, Leaving Belgian keeper Mignolet on the bench, and that has led to speculation that he may be the next player to pack his nags and exit Anfield in a bid to reignite his once promising career.
However, Mignolet insists he will continue to give everything for Reds boss Jurgen Klopp when he returns to training this week following the international break.
He was quoted on the Daily Star website: “I will go back to Liverpool and work hard. We have got the Huddersfield game to prepare for and I will always be there for the team. That’s the only thing I can do at this moment.
“I am not thinking about my future at this moment in time. The only thing I can do is wait for my chance and work hard in training. I always try and be ready if I am playing or not playing. I always prepare myself in the same manner and when the opportunity comes along you have to grasp it.”
Should Mignolet push for a move away? Here is what we think.
Mignolet is coming to that age that he should be in his prime as a stopper and needs to force a move away for the sake of his career, especially since Alisson will be the clubs number one for the foreseeable future.
