Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet gets nostalgic about former club on Twitter

Simon Mignolet

The Belgian is a boyhood Sint Truiden player and resident.

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet certainly comes from humble beginnings.

He started his career with hometown club Sint-Truiden. The 27-year-old never came through the famed youth systems of Anderlecht, Standard Liege or KRC Genk - instead he worked his way up the hard way with his lowly and beloved side.

He spent six years with the club, helping them to promotion to the Belgian top-flight and winning Belgian Goalkeeper of the Year in the process, when Sunderland snapped him up in 2010.

From there he has progressed to become Liverpool's number one stopper.

But he does not forget his roots.

Last night he posted this picture on Twitter, showing him in his Sint Truiden kit, with the accompanying message:

"I also try to support my #STVV on the former players day! yellowbluearmy #22"

Mignolet is certainly in great form at the moment.

He had some major troubles throughout the start of the season and was eventually dropped by Brendan Rodgers for Australian number two Brad Jones. After he picked up an injury Mignolet came back in to the fold and is now performing exceptionally well.

But it is good to see he does not forget his roots.
