Liverpool fans on Twitter love having Mignolet at the club

Simon Mignolet may not be the best goalkeeper in the world but he’s a great man to have behind the scene at Anfield. The Belgian has been barely spoken about this season, down to the Reds’ early exit from both cup competitions, but James Milner has been on the Liverpool website celebrating the shot-stopper for his incredible attitude around the club.

Milner has claimed that Mignolet is the best professional that he has ever seen, and Milner has played with a lot of players down the years. The 33-year-old also says that every single day in training Mignolet is pushing himself and Alisson Becker to be better, learning from the Brazilian shot-stopper as he goes. It will be hard for the Belgian, knowing his chances are slim, but he’s taken it like a champion.

The next step for Mignolet in his career surely won’t be to stick around at Anfield as a number two goalkeeper, and it will be no shock to see him leave sooner or later, but for now the Belgian is doing a great job of getting his head down and working. The campaign so far has seen him feature for just 180 minutes, losing two games and conceding f0ur times as they bowed out of the League and FA Cup to Chelsea and Wolves respectively, but even that hasn’t affected Mignolet’s attitude.

The Kopites can have no complaints about Mignolet and will hope the Belgian is happy to stick around and continue to be their cup ‘keeper given his attitude and professionalism.
