Jurgen Klopp sees no need for Hungarian goalkeeper Adam Bogdan whatsoever at Liverpool next term.
In fact, our manager is happy to give away the 27-year-old for free, despite the fact he has a year left on his contract, reports the Express.
Bogdan was a miserable failure last term having signed on a free to back up Simon Mignolet. Clumsy errors against Watford and then Exeter made fans question why we acquired him in the first place, and Klopp moved quickly to sign Loris Karius this summer – effectively confirming Bogdan as surplus to requirements.
The Daily Star claimed two days ago that Wigan were a likely destination, which is a level much more befitting his ability – without wanting to sound too cruel.
Bogdan though wants to leave on loan, so as to prove himself and eventually return to Liverpool…
“The goal is to get loaned out. I could stay but I would need incredible luck or a lot of injuries to climb the ladder,” he told Goal Hungary.
“I can get out of this situation by performing well somewhere else. Then if life allows it, return to Liverpool. I need to go to prove my worth.
“Mignolet and Danny Ward will get a few weeks to rest after Euro 2016 so there is a strong chance I will go to the USA training camp.”
Even if Ward is loaned out, there still isn’t much use for Bogdan at Anfield, as we’re not in Europe next year – and would truly encourage the stopper to seek pastures new.
