For a while Klopp settled on a compromise wherein Mignolet would handle the league games while Karius would take over for the Champions League and all of the cups.
"The problem they have is that everyone is watching them (through a magnifying glass) and saying "still not good enough".
"Fantastic goalkeeper but was he flawless? No". First 20 games without a mistake, maybe the mistake happened in the 21.
"It is a hard job being a goalkeeper or centre-half at Liverpool because no-one forgives you one mistake", Klopp said.
When asked what he had seen to convince him that Karius was ready to become No. 1 again, Klopp said: "The games he played and the performances he's had in training".
"In general I think that, nowadays, there are no such hostile relations between goalkeepers anymore". He is a really good goalkeeper, and we brought him in because we wanted him to play.
"It was so hard for all the players but the goalkeepers have mental stress and in games like this you want 100 percent concentration, it's not a physical thing". The 29-year-old has been ever closer to a move to Old Trafford after United accepted to pay his wages north of £450k per week. News emerged earlier this week that Sanchez was made to train with Arsenal academy players, a pointer to the fact that an exit is imminent for the player.
"I changed not my opinion but I changed the situation and that is all". He needs to do a lot of things that will make him better but he is here and he is still in our minds.

"There are three big goalkeepers and they only had the position where they started".
