Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp satisfied with goalkeeping options

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said he is happy with goalkeepers Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius.

The club have been linked with a move for another goalkeeper -- with Joe Hart touted as a possibility -- amid inconsistent performances from both Mignolet and Karius.

But Klopp, who has indicated that he wants to freshen up his squad in the summer, told a news conference ahead of Sunday's home game against Burnley that he was satisfied with his goalkeeping situation.

"I am happy most of the days," he said.

"One day when a goalkeeper is involved in a goal which happens quite a few times it is the life of a goalkeeper that you are the last man standing. Then you are not too happy.

"But I am happy with our goalkeepers, yes."

Mignolet has returned as the club's No. 1 goalkeeper after Karius was dropped, but Liverpool have endured a tough start to 2017 that has seen them fall off the pace in the Premier League and go out of both domestic cup competitions.

Klopp said: "It is how it always is in football -- it is all about players. We have these really, really good goalkeepers.

"We have [third-choice Alex] Manninger, a wonderful professional player, which helps the squad a lot.

"Our situation is as good as possible."
