Club Brugge goalkeeper Mignolet expects plenty of attention ahead of Man Utd clash

Club Brugge goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is ready for the build-up going into next week's Europa League clash with Manchester United.

The two teams meet in the round of 32 and Mignolet knows he'll be the focus thanks to his Liverpool background.

“Of course, there will be a lot said before and after the game," Mignolet told the Mirror. "For me, going back to England, there will be a lot of talk about my history as a Liverpool player.

“But I just have to do my job. It's not me that's going to kick United out of the Europa League, I can only try to stop them from scoring.

“Hopefully someone else will be the hero for us, because that will mean we've scored a goal, rather than having to defend the whole game."
