Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has criticised goalkeeper Simon Mignolet comments over the club’s decision to allow Loris Karius’ exit

Instead of the German, Mignolet had been expected to be shown the door at Anfield this summer following Alisson Becker’s arrival from AS Roma.

But, following his high-profile errors in May’s Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid, it was Karius who left for Besiktas on a two-year loan deal.

Something which Mignolet found “bizarre”.

“Discussing your individual problems in public doesn’t make too much sense,” said Klopp, according to TeamTalk.

“It was still okay. If he was happy to be a number two then I wouldn’t know him – he’s a top professional.

“If you want to say something, say it to me directly than to a newspaper. He’s on pretty good pay at Liverpool by the way.”

Mignolet has over two years left on his current deal at Liverpool.
