New Liverpool keeper Simon Mignolet has backed his fellow first timers at the club, Mamadou Sakho and Victor Moses, to play a very big role in Liverpool’s season, reports The Mirror.
Both Sakho and Moses, a defender and forward respectively, made their debuts against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Monday.
The Reds goakeeper told Liverpool Echo about the Nigerian international, “It was a good performance from him and hopefully he keeps it going. It was great for Victor to score.”
Neither did he have any reservation against new centre back Mamadou Sakho, saying that he had the right skill set to succeed in the Premier League.
Mignolet also praised the tenacity of his team to eke out a 2-2 draw away from home against a resilient Swansea team, and said that the Reds probably deserved to win, but profligacy in converting created chances cost them the win.
The Belgian custodian himself has been impressive in his first few games, putting in some brilliant shifts in between the posts, and although he conceded for the first time this season, he was one of Liverpool’s most important players on the pitch. Liverpool face big spending Southampton in their next match on Saturday as they look to continue their dream start to the season.
