Simon Mignolet addresses future before Real Madrid clash

Loris Karius

Ever since he joined Liverpool Jurgen Klopp has had an issue with his goalkeepers with first Simon Mignolet making mistakes and then Loris Karius, who Klopp bought, also not looking consistently good enough.

And with the Liverpool boss showing no sign of reversing his decision and speculation intensifying over a possible move for Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker, Mignolet is set to remain on the peripheral.

Mignolet wants to keep the feeling of togetherness in the squad before the most important game in years.

The 24-year-old German has faced criticism throughout his time at Anfield, having been snapped up from Mainz in the summer of 2016.

"No individual is bigger than the team, especially when you have the final of the Champions League to play", he said to Sky Sports. There will be a lot of speculation about my name because I am not playing but I am not really thinking about it'.

Mignolet played a key role to get Liverpool's Champions League campaign up and running.

In an attempt to throw the ball out to his defender, Karius' pass connected with Karim Benzema; the Frenchman's touch leading the ball into the net, and granting Real Madrid a 1-0 lead in the Champions League final.

Mignolet played 22 games for the Reds this year but has only played in the qualification games of the Champions League so far.
