Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Stoke City was far from a comfortable one. The Reds were trailing at half time and only a quick-fire brace from Brazilians Phil Coutinho and Roberto Firmino ensured they got all three points.
There was also a phenomenal little save from Simon Mignolet that denied Stoke an equaliser.
The save was something Georginio Wijnaldum was quick to praise in an Instagram post uploaded after the game. Aside from thanking the Liverpool fans for their support, he specifically mentioned how well Mignolet had played, which would have been music to the ears of the much-maligned keeper.
To his eternal credit, the Belgian proceeded to showcase what a team player he was by posting a nice little comment in reply to the post.
Whatever his limitations as a goalkeeper, it isn’t hard to see that Mignolet is quite the team player who is willing to place the side above himself after reading what he said.
