Bruce Grobbelaar: Liverpool hero unconvinced by Mignolet

Bruce Grobbelaar expects Jurgen Klopp to sign a new goalkeeper to replace current Liverpool number one Simon Mignolet.

Liverpool legend Grobbelaar played in goal at Anfield for 13 years and is widely regarded as one of the best stoppers to play for the club.

The former Zimbabwe international, who is now coaching in Canada, believes Mignolet is not good enough for the Reds and is likely to be replaced.

“I think he is looking at it. There are a couple of goalkeepers in the German league that he is looking at so I can see that might be one of his first signings,” Grobbelaar told talkSPORT.

“I’ve had my criticism of Mignolet for two or three years, I even got pulled in and asked not to criticise him so openly.

“I’ve said that he is a goalkeeper who is a great shot stopper, but he is not the overall package. The overall package is good with your feet and coming out and commanding your area.

“I’ve got a goalkeeper in Canada, a 24-year-old, who does this better than Mignolet does and is just as good of a shot stopper. He is more of a package than Mignolet is.

Belgium international Mignolet joined Liverpool from Sunderland for £9million in 2013 but has struggled for consistency at Anfield and was even dropped in preference for Brad Jones for a spell last season.
