Simon Mignolet: Club Brugge training facilities far better than Liverpool's

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has hailed the training facilities of Club Brugge.

Mignolet, who spent six years at Anfield, moved to the Belgian club in a €7million move (£6.25m) this summer.

He told HLN: "This is better than Melwood, the training ground of Liverpool, better than that of Sunderland and the training complex of the Red Devils in Tubize. There is really nothing missing here.

“If you are present somewhere every day as a player, the defects quickly come to light. In Liverpool there was no swimming pool, in Sunderland, for example, no hotel rooms.

"Everything is there to get better as a player."
