Liverpool boss Rodgers praises Mignolet

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has hailed goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, as the Belgian approaches the end of his first season with the club, Sky Sports has reported.

Simon Mignolet

Mignolet was brought to the club last summer as a replacement for the long-serving Jose Reina, who was sent out on loan to Napoli after nine years as Liverpool’s first choice goalkeeper. The 26-year-old had shown promise during his first three years in English football with Sunderland.

He has gone on to make 38 appearances for Liverpool, and has once again impressed with his shot-stopping ability, although doubts have been raised over his distribution and his capability of dealing with crosses.

However, Rodgers is delighted with the maturity that Mignolet has shown in his first season at Anfield. He said: "I've been delighted with Simon since he has come in. I think he's an outstanding goalkeeper who is only going to get better and better.

"He has come into a huge club and replaced a legendary figure at the club in Pepe Reina. That was always going to take a bit of time. But over the course of the season he has made a big contribution. I don't forget the significance of some of the saves he has made.

"Simon hasn't ever cost us a game but he has certainly gained us points. He's an excellent goalkeeper."

Utter rubbish, i'm sorry. He hasn't cost us games because we have scored more at the other end. If we were so free scoring he would be responsible for many losses. He doesn't command his six yard box let alone his 18 yard area, looks very weak on crosses and doesn't command the defenders so we ultimately let in alot of goals. You could argue that our goal difference would be better than man city's by now and we would be odds on to win the league so to say he hasn't cost us games is technically accurate but he will have cost us the league if we lose on goal difference
