Klopp at ease with his goalkeepers

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has moved to deny reports he is looking for another goalkeeper, insisting he is "comfortable" with the ones currently at the club.

The Reds have been linked with first-choice Stoke keeper Jack Butland and Standard Liege No.1 Guillaume Hubert, despite signing Adam Bogdan in the off-season.

Simon Mignolet has started all the games in the Premier League and Europa League for the Merseyside giants this term, while Bogdan has only featured in the Capital One Cup thus far.

And Klopp claims to be content with his current options between the sticks, even going so far as to praise Mignolet, who has kept five clean sheets in his 14 league outings.

"I am absolutely satisfied with the goalkeeping situation. Sorry to kill your stories. We're not looking for a goalkeeper," the German declared.

"Simon Mignolet – I have had a lot of goalkeepers in the last few years and he is one of the smartest I've ever had. He is completely open. He's young enough to develop, to improve.

"He had not the most easy situation before I came here but since I am here there is nothing to criticise, absolutely nothing. He is a good football player. Everything is okay.

"Everyone is watching for a second Manuel Neuer or things like this but he is on a really good way. The goalkeeper situation until now is a comfortable one and I hope it stays like this, of course."
