Sunderland Keeper Defends His Defenders!
When quizzed if the Sunderland back-line give him more work than other Premiership goalkeepers get, Simon Mignolet would have none of it!
Simon Mignolet: “I never speak about any of my colleagues because, for me, if you can be a goalie in the Premier League then you can play anywhere. It’s as simple as that.
“I never think in terms about who is the best in the league.
“Anyone who has a contract with a Premier League team is a very capable goalkeeper.
“I don’t think about what people think of me.
“Football is a team game first and foremost. That’s the most important thing.
“I am pleased with how things have gone up until now, but my good season can turn into a bad one over the remaining games.
"So I only look forward to the matches I need to play.
“At the end of the season, I can look back at how I played.
“But all I am thinking about now is getting Sunderland higher up the league.”
