Mignolet proud of way he's fought back at Liverpool

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is proud of recovering from being dropped in December.

Mignolet is now in the best form of his Reds career.

He told liverpoolfc.com: "I look back to it only in a positive way. That's what I did when it happened. I told myself I could do two things; let my head drop or work hard and come back stronger.

"I am happy with how I reacted in that sense. I am happy I kept my head down and worked hard in training. I didn't speak to the outside world, I just kept doing what I can do.

"It's something positive to look back on, it was a new experience. The older you get, the more experience you get and through these kind of situations, you only come back stronger and more positive.

"It wasn't easy, but the manager, the coaches, everyone at the ground and the players helped me with it, so it's big credit to them as well for giving me their support. They helped me out and made sure I could do that [get back into the team]."
