Good on Simon Mignolet…
He’s lost his spot in Liverpool’s first-team, is probably going to leave in the summer, but has held himself with dignity the entire time.
Today, Instagram account benchwarmers took a jab at him, but he responded in a classy manner.
‘What a bunch of brilliant players and Simon Mignolet,’ they said, alongside a picture of the keeper in Belgium’s recent team photo.
‘From an account called Benchwarmers, I was hoping for a bit more respect,’ retorted Migs!
Most footballers would take the bait and write something that makes them look worse, but the 30-year-old nailed it.
Wherever he ends up next season, we’re going to wish him luck.
