Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Simon Mignolet’s contract extension


Simon Mignolet has agreed a contract extension with Liverpool.

As confirmed by the official Liverpool website, Simon Mignolet has agreed a contract extension with the Reds.

The news was announced yesterday, with the Belgian stopper agreeing a deal until the summer of 2021.

Mignolet, 27, has made 122 appearances for the Reds since arriving at Anfield from Sunderland in the summer of 2013.

He was first-choice goalkeeper in the team who almost won the Premier League under Brendan Rodgers, but his career on Merseyside has become known for a catalogue of errors in a Liverpool shirt.

Countless mistakes have made Liverpool fans question Mignolet’s worth to the side, and although he regularly keeps league high tallies of clean sheets, his talent is doubted.

Despite fans not seeing Mignolet’s worth, head coach Jurgen Klopp clearly believes the stopper is good enough for a Premier League side, and the long-term contract extension is a real show of faith to him.

Following the confirmation of the deal, fans took to Twitter to react to the contract extension, with critics aimed at Klopp for his trust in the keeper.
