Having three goalkeepers competing for one starting place can only be beneficial for Liverpool, according to Jürgen Klopp.

Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet will be joined by Danny Ward in pre-season training this summer after the Wales international spent last term on loan with Huddersfield Town and helped the club claim promotion to the Premier League.

Mignolet took control of the position in the second half of 2016-17 and aided the Reds’ push for a Champions League berth by recording four consecutive clean sheets in the closing weeks.

As Klopp oversees preparations for the new season, the trio will each be afforded the same opportunity to impress by a boss who only sees positives in the situation.

“That’s very comfortable for the manager, three really good goalkeepers,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.

“It is like it is and nothing is decided, they can all show how good they are. I don’t want to bring doubt so that they start doubting.

“They are at a fantastic club and a fantastic football club needs fantastic goalkeepers. We had a really good goalkeeping season.

“Yes, it was a little bit difficult for Loris but I’m sure he had his part in the development of Simon, who played a really good season. And Danny played a fantastic season at Huddersfield with a big success at the end.

“We have three goalkeepers and they can all show what they are able to do, and then we will see who will start.”
