Simon Mignolet hits out at 'bizarre' Loris Karius loan

While Alisson Becker was becoming only the third Liverpool goalkeeper in 51 years to keep a clean sheet in the opening three league matches of the season the man he replaced, Loris Karius was joining Besiktas on a two-year loan.

Kelleher warmed up Allisson and Simon Mignolet before Liverpool's 1-0 win over Brighton on Saturday and the Liverpool Echo reports that Klopp is "blown away" by his development and has made him number three at Anfield.

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has questioned the club's decision to let Loris Karius leave Anfield ahead of him this summer.

Mignolet has often expressed his desire to play first-team football on a regular basis, be it at Liverpool or at a club elsewhere. "I like the save from the header more than the chip, but the chip was the right thing to do in that situation".

"I find it freaky that Karius was loaned while I also had options to be loaned".

State health officials boost West Nile virus risk level to ‘moderate’ statewide
The Gwinnett County Health Department is investigating a case of West Nile Virus reported in a resident. Clinical signs for WNV include flu-like symptoms, where the horse seems mildly anorexic and depressed.

"I find it weird that Karius is [on loan], while I also had options to be [loaned]", he told Het Laatste Nieuws. But for some reason that wasn't possible.

The German keeper had been trusted in goal throughout the season, but numerous errors - most notably two in the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid - were the last straw for Klopp. I don't know what my future with Liverpool looks like. "Nothing decided. If it happens then we will speak about it".

Klopp has had to defend his massive outlay on a 25-year-old goalkeeper who had only one, albeit impressive, season at Roma but he has gone past that now.

There nearly seems a jealously that it was Karius who was loaned out and he's especially confused considering the German played above him last season.

"Proud to be part of the famous Besiktas family now", Karius wrote on Twitter.
