Jurgen Klopp wants to give Danny Ward a prolonged chance to stake his claim as Liverpool’s no.1.
This has been confirmed by Dave Maddock in the Mirror, as well as a whole host of reliable sources.
But Liverpool fans are split on whether this decision, made entirely by Jurgen Klopp, is a good one.
Some think Ward has rightly earned a shot, especially over Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet, while others believe it’s a naive and unnecessary gamble considering our problems between the sticks.
We were not over the moon when we heard we were not going to buy a new stopper, but were relieved that it’s Ward and not Karius who’s now first-choice.
All we can do now is get fully behind the Welshman and hope Klopp is proven right, which he has been plenty of times before.
Klopp going with the bandaid solution to a large gash sized problem that needs urgent addressing. Sound
Good luck to Danny Ward #LFC

Danny Ward has been with us since 2012, a year before Mignolet signed. Be funny when it turns out he's a world beater and it's taken us six years to give him a go!

Mignolet was shit so we bought Karius who was shit so then we brought back mignolet who was shot so then we brought Karius back again who was shit so now we’re bringing in Danny ward who wasn’t considered during all of this. Cool.

Klopp watched Ward train all last season, tried both Mignolet & Karius as his No1, never once mentioned Ward as a contender, & now he's suddenly good enough to stake his claim? Bullshit.

Do people actually think after the three years Klopp has been here seeing Ward train day & in day out. Years of big fatal Karius & Mignolet errors.Then suddenly one error in preseason in one week now the forgotten man Ward now gets his chance for No.1? Not buying it @FalseFirmino

Let’s just get something straight here, Danny Ward isn’t some washed up ageing number 3 kept around for experience. He showed incredible talent on loan as was kept around for Klopp to get a closer look at. Let’s give the lad a chance. I don’t want to hear any negatives. #LFC

Danny Ward absolutely deserves a chance to show us if he can step up to the mark – but, surely not under these circumstances. The pressure, the impatience and the sh*t or bust situation just feels slightly unfair on Ward.

The reason that LFC haven't bid for Alisson Becker is because Klopp is impressed with the maturity of Danny Ward. [Dave Maddock]
In other news, I decided to turn down a date with Dua Lipa after being impressed with the wank I had in the shower this morning

"Klopp's decided not to make a move for Alisson after Danny Ward impressed in training"

Between them, Nick Pope and Martin Dubravka had a combined zero Premier League starts heading into this past season.
Both played invaluable roles in the success of their respective sides.
Maybe we could try not putting the carriage before the horse with Danny Ward, here…? pic.twitter.com/dJVJh79WJx
