Simon Mignolet talks to Het Laatste Nieuws
On Tuesday morning, Belgian paper Het Laatste Nieuws have published a new interview with Liverpool goalie Simon Mignolet.

It’s generally been a disappointing season for Mignolet at Anfield. After starting the year as Jurgen Klopp’s preferred keeper, he’s lost his place to Loris Karius.
Mignolet is likely to leave Liverpool at the end of the season in search of more playing time.
The 30-year-old is under contract with the Reds until 2021, yet most believe Liverpool will let him leave without any bother.
Mignolet has made 19 Premier League appearances this term, conceding 24 goals.

Mohamed Salah vs Luis Suarez
Perhaps the most eye-catching comment from Mignolet in his HLN interview came when comparing Mo Salah to Luis Suarez:
Luis Suarez was super clinical, but in terms of pace and technique I rate Mo Salah higher.
Salah has already matches Suarez’s best Premier League scoring return in a season.
At the peak of his Liverpool powers, Suarez scored 31 goals in the 2013-14 Premier League season.
The Egyptian has already scored 31 goals, while he has four matches left to break the record.

Suarez, meanwhile, has scored 23 goals for Barcelona this campaign.

Mignolet on his season at Liverpool
When it came to discussing his own situation, Mignolet opened up about his frustrations at Anfield this season:
I try to help my mates as much as possible.
(James) Milner likes to practice penalties with me, and (Mohamed) Salah sometimes asks me things about goalkeepers.
Before Bournemouth I gave him tips about (Asmir) Begovic.
