Mignolet: Liverpool Are Better Without Suarez

share on:

Simon Mignolet believes Liverpool are a stronger side than when Luis Suarez played for them.

Mignolet’s first season at Merseyside saw Liverpool finish two points behind Manchester City in second. With Suarez championing that season for them with 31 goals and 21 assists in 33 appearances.

However, the Belgian says Liverpool don’t rely on individual brilliance to perform since the arrival of Klopp.

“We’ve got 25 players in the dressing room but in the end there are only 11 who can play, so there are always going to be a few guys disappointed each weekend,” he said.

“We are fighting for the same objective, though, and I think that is our strength this season: we perform as a team.

“When I first came here it was more about certain individuals, Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge were scoring all the goals and Steven Gerrard was still playing. Now the danger comes from the strength and unity of the squad.

“We are all pressing together and relying on each other to defend, rather than hoping someone will score us a goal at the other end of the pitch.

“Back in the day, if you could stop Luis, you had a chance against Liverpool but now you have to face a whole team playing for each other and I guess that’s a lot harder.”
