Mignolet tells Karius to move on from Liverpool axing

Simon Mignolet said no individual is bigger than
the club as the Liverpool goalkeeper urged team-
mate Loris Karius to learn from his axing and move
on.
Mignolet came in for Karius on Wednesday,
keeping a clean sheet in Liverpool's 3-0 Premier
League victory over Middlesbrough, after Jurgen
Klopp finally lost patience with the German shot-
stopper.
Karius paid the price after some high-profile
mistakes in matches against West Ham and
Bournemouth and widespread criticism.
There is no timeframe on a return to the starting XI
for Karius but Mignolet said things can change
quickly.
"The goalkeeper position is not an easy one," said
Mignolet, who is expected to retain his place for
Monday's Merseyside derby at Everton.
"No individual is more important than the club and
the only important thing is the club.
"Obviously, for Loris, it won't be nice, but he is
capable and professional enough to learn from it.
"You have to be mentally strong to deal with it. In
football things can change very quickly, with an
injury or illness. You have to stay professional,
keep your head down and work hard on and off the
pitch. Stay focused, which is not always easy,
especially as a keeper.
"As a striker you can come on to help the team as
a sub at certain moments, but as a goalkeeper, you
normally have to wait for your chance [to start] and
just try to be ready."
