Klopp coy over Mignolet's future at Liverpool

  Klopp coy over Mignolet's future at Liverpool Liverpool’s goalkeeping situation has been well documented over the course of the last two seasons and Jurgen Klopp is still seemingly unsure as to who his first choice is. The Reds boss has alternated Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius over some time now but, in recent weeks, the latter has been the preferred candidate between the sticks. Klopp revealed that Karius will keep his place in goal on Wednesday, too, as Liverpool take on FC Porto away from home in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 clash. The Liverpool manager, as quoted by Goal, was quizzed on what the future holds for Mignolet, given that the Belgian international has been somewhat frozen out as a result of Karius’ recent form. However, Klopp was coy when speaking about Mignolet and insisted that he was unsure what the future holds for his goalkeeper. “Nobody knows about the future, or I don’t know about the future. In this business it is always the same – it says nothing about that.” “It’s not for me to think about these kind of things. I have to make a decision for tomorrow night and that’s all. No problem.” Karius will be keen to impress and turn in a good performance against Porto.

The second leg of the Reds' last 16 Champions League tie will also go ahead without Gini Wijnaldum and Ben Woodburn after the pair only made their return from illness on Wednesday. Being a Liverpool fan is knowing we’re up 5-0 in CL and still being worried that somehow we’ll manage to piss it away

Salah joined Liverpool to win trophies .
Mohamed Salah has revealed that he aims to win the Premier League with Liverpool one day. The Egypt international has been a revelation for the Reds’ since signing from Roma in the summer, scoring 30 goals in all competitions. Liverpool are unlikely to catch Premier League leaders Manchester City this season, with the Cityzens currently 16 points ahead of second place Manchester United. However, with the Reds’ likely to finish in the top four this season, Salah wants to go one better and win the title next season. Talking to BBC’s Football Focus, Salah said; “I came to here to win titles.” “I can tell the fans we work 100 per cent to try and win something for the club. It’s a long time since the club won the league.” “It’s my dream to win the Premier League – but I want to win it with this club.” Liverpool last collected silverware in the 2011-2012 season, where Kenny Dalglish’s Reds’ beat Cardiff City on penalties to win the League Cup, and current boss Jurgen Klopp is desperate to win a trophy with the club. Meanwhile, Salah has been linked with Real Madrid, given the level of his personal success this season. However, Liverpool will resist any offer for their star forward, having recently sold Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for £142million.
