Klopp identifies Liverpool’s number one keeper

Jurgen Klopp says Simon Mignolet is his No.1 goalkeeper and the Belgian will have played most of the games come the end of the season.

The Liverpool manager has been rotating his keepers this season, with Mignolet starting the campaign but Loris Karius brought in for the meetings with Arsenal and the Champions league clash against Sevilla.

With doubts surrounding who Klopp preferred in his goal, all while Danny Ward sits on the sidelines, the manager has moved to clarify the goalkeeping hierarchy.

Discussing his recent approach, he said: “Sometimes the easiest thing is for me that as boss, the players have to take it.

“Ask a goalkeeper ‘what do you think’, and he took it and said ‘that’s a good idea’, something would be really wrong.

“As I said, we need strong goalkeepers.

“We have young keepers at the best age and they are all ready to play. And we have to use this situation for the good of the club.

“They have to take that. I did it and they must take it.

“Simon Mignolet is No.1. At the end of the season, he will have 85% of all games I think.

“In the last game, Loris Karius played. Because he played against Arsenal, he played really well. The crowd need to get used to him, but this is modern football. I can’t remember one mistake. This is good for us.”
