Klopp: Karius Playing Does Not Mean Mignolet Is Replaced

share on:

Jurgen Klopp has stated that even if Loris Karius starts in the match against Hull City, doesn’t mean Simon Mignolet is relegated to the bench.

The former Dortmund manager is facing a selection headache of their clash, with both keepers available.

And Klopp has reiterated whichever goalkeeper he opts to leave out in favour of the other is not a slight, urging them not to take the decision personally.

“This is not a place to announce line-ups, but of course, we have to think about it in a very positive way,” Klopp said ahead of the clash at Anfield.

“I was never a goalkeeper, but my father was a goalkeeper so I have a little bit of experience with them.

“It’s obviously a little bit different to if you change a midfield player or something, it’s hard to start one game for them then not the next, so I know about this.

“Whatever decision I make for the next game is not a final one, it doesn’t we will go like this through the next five years or something.

“I can imagine that the view of this is different though [than to choices for other positions], but that’s all. It’s a decision on a very high level, because I’m really happy with both of them.

“I’ve got nothing to say about this here, but like always, when I decide for the next game, it’s a decision for the player and not against another player.

“That’s always the same, so you have to wait and see.”
