The goalkeeping situation at Liverpool is one many were sure Jurgen Klopp would look to address again in the summer transfer window.
Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius have fought it out for the number one spot throughout the season but both have also been subject to criticism and doubts over whether they are the men to take the Reds forward.
It seems, however, that Klopp is more than happy with the shot-stoppers he has at his disposal, hinting at plans to put his faith in them for the foreseeable future.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, he said: “One day when a goalkeeper is involved in a goal, which happens quite a few times – it is the life of a goalkeeper that you are the last man standing – then you are not too happy. But I am happy with our goalkeepers, yes.”
“It is how it always is in football – it is all about players. We don’t make final decisions until I don’t know when.”
“We have these two really good goalkeepers. We have with Alex Manninger, a wonderful professional player which helps the squad a lot. We also have young players in behind including (Danny) Ward on loan (at Huddersfield). Our situation is as good as possible.”
While there is the case for the idea Karius has plenty of time to develop given his age, it is important he settles in England at some point and begins to show at least glimpses of what earned him a move to Liverpool in the first place.
In the meantime, it is also up to Mignolet to show some consistency and continue to fix the aspects of his game that so often come into question.
The remainder of the season could be telling in terms of the position of both men at the club.
