Earlier in the week, Liverpool coach, Jurgen Kloop revealed that Loris Karius will be the no 1 choice goalkeeper leaving Simon Mignolet as second choice.
Mignolet has revealed he is not happy with being second choice and has vowed to win back his place as the number one goalkeeper.
For the last few matches in the premiership, Mignolet has been on the bench but he was given a chance to be in goal in Livepool’s 2-1 victory over Tottenham in the EFL cup but the Belgian has revealed he is not happy and wants more.
“I don’t want to be a No 2, that’s clear. I want to play, I will never give up fighting because that’s not in my character to just give up. Secondly, because i am not in a situation where I can sit on the bench. I’m 28 years old and I want to play week-in, week-out. So I’ll work hard and I’ll never give up – giving up is not what I want to do. I see it as a challenge that I can overcome. So hopefully it will be a fair challenge based on performances put in on the pitch.”
After putting in a good performance against Tottenham, the Belgian stated he will continue doing his best for the club as his fights to win back his place in goal.
“I don’t want to think about that. It’s not in my character, I will always support the team and the club. Hopefully I can get my chance again to show what I can do. I am happy with my performance against Tottenham. I will keep fighting to get my place back, to be honest, the only thing I can do is work hard, keep my head down.”
