Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has admitted to Sky Sports that he is struggling with his current situation at the club.

Mignolet has lost his place in the Liverpool starting lineup to Loris Karius and has not played for the Reds since late January.

The 30-year-old has admitted that he is struggling with is current situation at Anfield as he has never been the second-choice goalkeeper in his career.

The Belgium international, who has been on the books of Liverpool since the summer of 2013 when he joined from Sunderland for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £9 million, has also revealed that he has held talks with manager Jurgen Klopp.

Mignolet told Sky Sports regarding a move away from Liverpool: "No, always the only thing you try to do is prove every time in training you are ready for when the chance comes along.

"It is never easy of course because I have never in my career spent time on the bench, but it is how it is and the only thing you can do is try to change it but it is never easy.”

The Liverpool goalkeeper added: "I've had a few conversations with the manager already and we have spoken about numerous things.

"I'm always open and he's always open, you know how he is, but at this time it is not the time and place to do that".

Time to move on?

Mignolet has made a number of costly errors at Liverpool since his move from Sunderland back in 2013, and it is hard to see him reclaim the number one status in goal anytime soon.

Perhaps it is time for the Belgian to move on and find a new club in the summer retransfer window, especially if he wants to play regularly.
