‘Let him leave’ – Liverpool fans react as international indicates desire to quit this summer

The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are expecting a busy summer at Anfield. It has been a very progressive season for the Reds, and it could get even better before the summer comes t0 an end.

A top-four finish is beginning to look likely, whilst there is a chance that a Champions League final could be on the horizon too.

This summer, then, a few major signings could take Liverpool to the next level, but it doesn’t look like arrivals are going to be the only thing on the horizon.

Indeed, a major departure or two could occur, with Belgian publication Voetbal Belgie hinting that Simon Mignolet could leave the club this summer.

Questioned on whether he could remain as a backup long-term, Mignolet said: “Absolutely not, this is really not for me. It has taken too long now”.

Clearly, Mignolet is not ready to spend another year on the bench – and so a summer departure looks likely.

Liverpool fans have been taking to Reddit over the last day or so to react to the news, and it’s fair to say that most aren’t surprised.

However, perhaps more surprisingly, they are being quite positive about the prospect of him quitting the club – with most simply thankful for the service that he has given the club. That said, they’re ready for him to leave.

Mignolet has been at Anfield since 2013, and though he has fallen out of favour in recent weeks, his years of service as the first choice goalkeeper clearly did have not gone unnoticed amongst fans.

Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
