Klopp says Mignolet is not happy


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is not happy since being dropped.

The Belgium international was taken out of the team and the number one status was handed to Loris Karius for what appears to be the rest of the season as Klopp considers whether he needs to sign a new stopper in the Summer.

Brazil international Alisson has been strongly linked with a move to Anfield, but Klopp is keen to let his current options prove their worth before making a decision.

“I didn’t think about the long-term.” he said.

“It is all good internally but of course he is not happy. How could he be?” he said of Mignolet.

“But he accepted the situation and is a fantastic character so he trains at a really high level. Like Danny Ward is doing by the way.

“They push each other. He was a long time the number one and now he is the number two but it doesn’t change his attitude in training which is all good.

“Before you turn forty, no goalkeeper is happy to sit on the bench.

“All three goalkeepers want to play but only one can start. You can’t change the goalkeeper like you change the other outfield players all the time.

“This is something they have known since they were five or six years old.

“It’s not easier but there are much bigger problems in the world than this one.” he finished.
