Simon Mignolet’s future thrown into doubt as Jurgen Klopp ends his goalkeeper rotation and makes Loris Karius his number one

Simon Mignolets time at Anfield appears to be coming to an end after five eventful but unsuccessful seasons. The Belgian joined the Reds from Stoke City in the summer of 2013, and almost helped them win the 2013/2014 Premier League title.

He has never really won over the Reds’ fans and analysts alike and he has always been considered not good enough to help Liverpool win any major trophy.

Although Jurgen Klopp offered him a new deal worth £100,000 per week last season to remain at the club until 2020, the German also brought in Loris Karius to compete with him for a starting place.

He had been rotating the two of them in the first half of the season, with Mignolet playing in the Premier League while Karius manning the post in Cup games including the Champions League.

However, after a clear the air talk with Mignolet, he told the Belgian that he is now second choice behind Karius. This has thrown the Belgian’s future into major doubt. Karius impressive performances in the last two games also appear to have vindicated the German’s decision.

Mignolet attracted the attention of Napoli last summer as they were looking for a backup to another former Liverpool goalie, Pepe Reina.
