Liverpool keeper takes bizarre approach to shot-stopping

When things aren’t going your way you’ve got to change something.

Simon Mignolet seemed to take this sentiment a bit too far against Sunderland by implementing an innovative new kind of goalkeeping that apparently involves falling over as the ball approaches.

As Adam Johnson’s shot swerved through the air the Belgian keeper moved closer and closer to the ground until he ended up on his backside.

Rodgers has said Mignolet needs to improve with his feet, but it seems his shot-stopping could do with a bit of scrubbing up too.

The Liverpool Manager is quoted by Mirror Sport as saying:

“He is trying to develop areas of his game. He knows he needs to improve with his feet and he is working hard on that on a daily basis. He is analysing the games and working with the coach and doing everything he can to be the best he can be.”
