Liverpool’s current number 1, Simon Mignolet, spoke to our friends at the Echo regarding his future and has said “Everyone will see the numbers and think I am fighting this guy and this guy. But that isn’t how it is,” Mignolet told the Liverpool Echo. He also went on to say “I’m fighting against Manuel Neuer, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Joe Hart, Iker Casillas. I know all those names are going to be flying around, I know what I did this season will be forgotten.”
The Belgian was dropped for the new signing Loris Karius who then was also dropped and since then has performed consistently throughout the most of the second half of the season. His has seen Mignolet’s goalkeeping statistics boost compared to every other season at the club.
On the other hand, Naby Keita has been showing no signs that he has his eyes set on a move to Anfield this summer. He told Bundesliga.com: “I really don’t worry about such things. My only focus is on our games and my performances; they are the most important things.”
Newcastle could make an attempt to make a loan move for Sheyi Ojo this summer, according to the Sunderland Echo which is of course their local paper. Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez was most definitely interested in signing Sheyi Ojo on loan in January but Liverpool rejected the move. He’s currently in South Korea for the U20 World Cup along with Ovie Ejaria.
