Liverpool recently signed Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson from Roma leaving them with now three goalkeepers. Klopp admits he can understand the frustrations of Karius & Mignolet who both have held the number one spot at some point for Liverpool. Here’s some quotes from the manager in an interview with Sky Sports.
“That is the world of football. Of course, can Loris be happy or Simon be 100 per cent happy about the situation? I don’t think so. How can people be happy like that? But it is part of life.”
Conceding that someone may leave Klopp isn’t going to let them leave for ‘four pounds or something’ Stating that the club are not in position where they must sell. Imagine with the current market prices today a high level professional moved to a Premier League club for 35 quid.
“But if somebody comes and says ‘can we have him for four pounds, or whatever, no of course not. They are quality players, all of them, and we are not in a situation where we have to do something.”
“But if someone comes [with an offer] we are always open for talks as we have shown in the past but there is nothing decided for the moment.
“From my point of view – purely as the head coach of the team – to have these three goalkeepers and the two young boys [goalkeepers Kamil Grabara and Caoimhin Kelleher], that makes me feel really good. But, it’s part of the business that some people will leave the club, so we will see what happens.”
Who would you like the stay at the club as back-up Karius or Mignolet?
