LFC star wants crunch talks with Jurgen Klopp; seeks assurances

Posted by

Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward is expected to hold talks with Jurgen Klopp as he looks to determine his immediate future.

The Welshman played a key role in helping Huddersfield Town reach the Premier League last season, but has since returned to Liverpool with a desire to make a name for himself on Merseyside.

Ward travelled as part of the Reds squad during pre-season but was left out for the club’s opening weekend fixture against Watford at Vicarage Road.

It’s for his omission that the 24-year-old wishes to sit down with his manager and discuss whether it is worth him staying at Liverpool this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Ward recently caught the eye with a standout display in Liverpool’s Audi Cup defeat to Atletico Madrid, but faces a tough task breaking into Klopp’s first eleven.

Simon Mignolet remains the club’s undisputed first choice been the sticks, while Loris Karius is seemingly still seen as his backup.

That said, the German’s failure to convince since making the move from Mainz in 2016 has led many supporters to suggest Ward is more than capable of challenging for his place on the pecking order.

Last season served as evidence of how quickly Liverpool’s goalkeeping situation can change, so there is every chance Klopp will tell Ward has wishes to keep hold of him between now and the end of the month.
