Liverpool injury news: Reds’ Goalkeeper suffers injury on international duty
The 30-year-old shot-stopper was left frustrated after not being allowed to leave Anfield during the transfer window. Mignole was kept as the backup Reds’ goalkeeper while Loris Karius was allowed to move to Besiktas.
Mignolet joined Liverpool in 2013 from Sunderland as the permanent replacement for Pepe Reina. Mignolet was replaced as Liverpool’s starter last term by Karius after several unconvincing performances. Liverpool’s summer signing of Alisson Becker has now planted Mignolet firmly on the bench.
Mignolet’s unhappiness with being kept at Anfield this season led him to air his frustrations publicly. It forced manager Jurgen Klopp to speak to the Reds’ goalkeeper about keeping his feelings out of the media.
The Belgian goalkeeper is expected to be Klopp’s choice for both the EFL Cup and FA Cup fixtures.
