Liverpool goalkeeper Mignolet admits Champions League frustration

Published on: 08 December 2017

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet admits he's unhappy playing second fiddle to Loris Karius in the Champions League this season.

Missing out on playing in the competition this term has been tough for Mignolet to take. Reds boss Jurgen Klopp opted to give Karius the honour of European duties.

Mignolet told the Liverpool Echo: “It's never easy to sit and watch. The gaffer makes those decisions and does what's best for the team. We have to accept that.

“I've never been one to throw in the towel. I can only work as hard as possible on the training pitch to maintain my level and keep my spot in the Premier League.

“There's something in the back of my mind always pushing me on. In football things can turn very quickly. Take what happened at Stoke recently, I could have been sent off and then the guy on the bench would have been needed to step on.

“You always have certain moments where you could have done better but I feel like in the games I've played I've managed to do my job."
