Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has revealed that he has held “positive” talks with manager Brendan Rodgers.
The Belgian was dropped “indefinitely” by Rodgers for the 3-0 defeat by Manchester United earlier this month and Australian Brad Jones has started every game since – but Mignolet returned as a substitute for the 1-0 win at Burnley on Boxing Day after Jones injured his thigh in the opening fifteen minutes.
Mignolet is set to keep his place in goal for the visit of Swansea City to Anfield tonight, with Jones still suffering from the injury. And he has said that he has spoken to his manager and feels good about his prospects.
“Yes, maybe it has helped me. The future will decide that. The only thing I can do is work hard. I spoke with him, cleared up a few things and I think that was positive.”
“I won’t discuss what we said but it was an honest meeting from both sides. The negative thing was going out of the team but you try to make it a positive and that’s what I’m trying to do.
“I don’t have to prove anything. The only thing I have to do is work hard in every game and do my best and then we will see what comes through. The only thing I can do is show on the pitch what I’m capable of.” he concluded.
