Danny Ward on what Jurgen Klopp said to him and hopes for Liverpool career

Anfield Night

Ward is currently on loan at Aberdeen but would like to return to Liverpool to challenge for his place.

Liverpool's on-loan goalkeeper Danny Ward has revealed details of a conversation he had with Reds manager Jurgen Klopp to Sky Sports News.

Ward, who is currently on loan at Aberdeen, spent some time during the last international break with Klopp at Melwood as the Reds boss ran the rule over those who were sent out on loan under Brendan Rodgers.

The Welshman told Sky Sports: "I spent two days down at Melwood after the international break and it was all good, all positive and he told me to carry on what I'm doing. 

"There's no guarantee for any player about anything. My aim is to just carry on doing well and hopefully I keep impressing the manager."

Klopp recently told reporters at a news conference that he was happy with the quality of goalkeepers at Liverpool, and reports then emerged, including one from The Guardian, that their number one Simon Mignolet was to be offered a new contract at Anfield, but the fact Klopp indicates he isn't looking elsewhere for a goalkeeper perhaps gives Ward the hope that he can feature at Anfield in the coming years.

He added: "I'm contracted to Liverpool so obviously I want to go back there and challenge for the number one shirt at some point in the future so who knows? At the minute I'm fully concentrated on doing well up here."

So far this season, Ward seems to have impressed in the Scottish Premiership, and helped Aberdeen to stay in touch at the top as they trail Celtic by seven points. 

It will be interesting to see what Klopp does when all of Liverpool's players out on loan return to the club. It seems that he is sticking by Mignolet as his number one for now, but circumstances can change.

The experience of playing regularly for Ward this season will have done him good, and the next pre-season is likely to be a crucial one if Mignolet and Adam Bogdan are still battling it out to be first choice.
