Liverpool’s out-of-favour goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is putting speculation about his future to one side so it does not interfere with their Champions League final build-up.
The Belgium international has not featured since the end of January after losing his first-team place to Loris Karius and it is possible the 30-year-old could move on this summer.
But Mignolet will not entertain any discussions about his future ahead of Saturday’s clash with Real Madrid in Kiev as he does not want to disturb the feeling of togetherness in the dressing room.
“No individual is bigger than the team, especially when you have the final of the Champions League to play,” he said.
“Even more so you have to play the part the club, the players and supporters need because in the end if you play for a trophy like that any individual is not important.”
Asked whether this could be his last outing in a Liverpool squad, Mignolet added: “That’s not really something I am thinking of. I have three years of a contract.
“There will be a lot of speculation about my name because I am not playing but I am not really thinking about it.”
