Klopp coy over Mignolet's future at Liverpool

And German stopper Karius believes he is on the right path.

"He's a top player - that's why Liverpool paid the price they did for him".

It's taken the ex-Mainz man a while to adjust to life on Merseyside following his £5.58 million move in July 2016, but things are finally starting to look up.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Loris Karius will continue in goal for the Reds for their Champions League game against Porto on Wednesday.

The Liverpool manager, as quoted by Goal, was quizzed on what the future holds for Mignolet, given that the Belgian global has been somewhat frozen out as a result of Karius' recent form.

Klopp's next move in the transfer market is going to be an interesting watch.

Karius and Van Dijk helped Liverpool keep their 11th clean sheet of the league season in a 2-0 win over Southampton on Sunday.

"Of course he has to adapt a bit because our style is so different". We defend high. He needs to get used to Dejan (Lovren) and Joel (Matip).

Mignolet's Liverpool contract lasts until 2020, and the 29 year old would be looking for a long term contract at another club, still feeling he has a lot to offer and also having a point to prove. "In the last few games I have had more stuff to do and I have been able to make some saves, which gives you more confidence. I enjoy every day of being here as it's a great club".

"Nobody knows about the future, or I don't know about the future", said Klopp, when asked if the end of his rotation policy spelled the end for Mignolet at Anfield.

"To be honest I have not made the final decision", Klopp said. A good one will play.

However, the German coach made the decision to demote Mignolet to second-choice goalkeeper over the past month or so.
