PHOTO: Liverpool stopper Mignolet a dead ringer for ... a wheelie-bin!

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is really not having a good week.


Last night was another bad night for Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. Harsh critics blamed him for the second Ludogorets goal yesterday, while the first was undoubtedly his fault.

He failed to hold on to a routine catch in the opening stages of the game last night while he remained rooted on his line, a common problem of his, for what proved to be the equaliser.

The Belgian's confidence appears to be shot at the moment and the £9 million Liverpool spent for him is beginning to look like a slight overpayment.

When compared to the likes of David De Gea and Thibaut Courtois at Manchester United and Chelsea respectively there is no doubt that Liverpool have keeper issues.

The Liverpool custodian is now under pressure from the media and fans, so the last thing he probably needed was to be compared to a rubbish bin.

But unfortunately, the purple shade of Liverpool wheelie bins certainly bears a resemblance to the stopper.

Cue the jokes on Twitter such as Mignolet being rubbish, the bin being more mobile and being better at catching what it is supposed to.

Poor Mignolet!
