Loris Karius is Liverpool’s No 1 Goalkeeper

Jurgen Klopp has finally confirmed what a lot of Liverpool fans already suspected in that Loris Karius is Liverpool’s number 1 goalkeeper.

Speaking during his pre match press conference on Monday afternoon before the EFL Cup tie with Tottenham at Anfield on Tuesday, Klopp fielded the inevitable questions about who would start in goal for the EFL cup game and what the chances were of Simon Mignolet starting the match.

Klopp said “the chance is at 100%, That’s only if nothing happens. If anything happens in training then I don’t hope, he will play 100%.”

When asked how Mignolet responded to not being the first choice, Klopp replied, “good. He is a real proffesional. We had a few talks because it’s not that I had the perfect answer. I couldn’t say no, you are bad and he is good and that’s why he is playing, so.”

“I said that is what I call a luxury problem. So it’s no problem and I only have to make a decision and I made the decision.”

“Of course he was not happy about this but as I said, he is a very serious person and a good professional and for us it the most comfortable situation I could imagine, that we have these goalkeepers fit and in shape so that’s it.”

“A few talks. Everything is good from my side. He is not happy but nobody can see this in training. He is still hard working, improving, all what he has to do and that’s all OK”

When it was mentioned the Klopp previously said the he didn’t have a number one goalkeeper, he responded by saying, “In this moment we have a number one. That’s Loris Karius. Like we had a number one when Loris was not fit. It was Simon.”

“So I now know what you make of this. I can imagine but that’s the situation. That’s how the goalkeeper knows. I can not leave them in doubt.”

“There was a short period, a short moment with the two or three games which Loris we gave him to see a bit more of him but after the last international break, I spoke to both of them and then we made this decision.”

“Loris is in this moment number one and Simon is number two but that’s all.”
