Liverpool confirmed yesterday that Loris Karius has gone on loan to Turkish giants Besiktas.

The move has left Mignolet baffled as he has not been allowed to leave Anfield.

“I find it bizarre that Karius is [on loan], while I also had options to be [loaned],” he told Het Laatste Nieuws.

“But for some reason that was not possible. A goalkeeper who was preferred to me last season may leave on a loan basis. Strange.

“This does not change anything for me. I have always been clear: I want to play.

“No. 2 or No. 3 makes little difference. Playing minutes is the most important.

“Nothing has been said to me after the departure of Loris. So I do not know what my future at Liverpool is. We’ll see what happens this week.”
