The Belgian hasn’t played for the Reds since new year’s day and wasn’t picked in the hig voltage match against Manchester City as well, and after that manager Jurgen Klopp also indicated that Loris Karius is the first choice keeper for the coming future, that has kept the 30 year old pondering about his future at Anfield, and the former numero uno custodian says that he needs to decide about his career.

“Ten days ago, after the game against Burnley, I had a conversation with Klopp,” Mignolet told Belgian media outlet Sporza. “In the Christmas period we had rotated again and I felt that that was not a healthy situation for a keeper.”

The former Sunderland keeper also says that he has got a clear picture this season of what is going to happen and that’s why he is considering his future at the Merseyside.

Mignolet is not the number one at Anfield anymore

“Klopp told me honestly and personally in that conversation. Of course I am absolutely not satisfied with that, but I must always respect a decision of the coach. After all that has happened this season, I know where I am and the situation has become clearer,” he said.

The Belgium international added that with the World Cup coming, he needs to think about his career and this can’t long long and he will have to take a decision promptly as he can’t afford to loose any more time.

There was also reports of a bust up between him and manager Klopp, but Mignolet denied that any such things has happened.

The current affair may not be the same between these two

“Klopp then told me what on Sunday was confirmed before and after the match but of  course I’m not happy with that – but no heavy words have come afterwards,” he added.

Mignolet is the 2nd choice goal keeper for Belgium after Thibaut Courtois, but with decreasing game time, there may be problems for him to stay at that position in the World Cup squad.
