The future of Simon Mignolet has been a moot point for some time now since losing his place as the Reds No. 1 ‘keeper.
First to Loris Karius, then, more acceptably, to Champions League-winning, triple Golden Gloved, Copa América victor, Alisson Becker.
That said, the 31-year-old Belgian has always upheld a dedicated professionalism and strived to work for the greater good of Jürgen Klopp’s side (a quality not unnoticed by James Milner).
Now, during pre-season, Mignolet holds senior status as the Reds only established ‘keeper out in the United States.
That was a fact he was questioned about during an interview, which ranged from the minutiae of team travelling to the admission of being a kind of ‘career ‘keeper,’ that is to say, winning trophies, “is why you’re paid to be a football player and that’s what your job is, so that’s what I try to do.”
“I try to do my best in the best way I can, because that’s what I’m paid for and that’s what my job is, and that’s what I always will do.”
Mignolet claimed that the “only thing I can do is help the team in the best way I can,” going on to say that the “most important thing is that the team wins games, wins trophies.”
If you sign up to LFCTVGO, there’s plenty of clips to watch – which shows fans what happens at Melwood and beyond during pre-season.
We’d urge you to do so, as it also enables you to watch the friendlies as well, but if you want to see the Mignolet video we mentioned, you can do so via this link.
