The three-man competition to be Liverpool’s starting goalkeeper will ensure the best outcome on behalf of the club, promises Danny Ward.
Having spent last term helping Huddersfield Town secure promotion to the Premier League during a loan spell, the Wales international returned to Melwood for pre-season training earlier this month.
Jürgen Klopp intends to give Ward the same opportunities afforded to Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet as the trio jostle for a regular position between the posts – a role the 24-year-old would obviously be delighted to assume.
But the stopper insists the interests of the club come before their individual aspirations, telling Liverpoolfc.com: “That’s the whole point.
“The more ‘keepers we have got with quality, the better. The manager has talked about us having competition between us, which can only be healthy for the squad in general.
“That’s our aim every day – to push each other as far as we can because we want Liverpool to have the best goalkeeper that we can potentially give them.
“The manager knows the three boys are more than capable. It’s a fight for the No.1 [spot], but we’ll be helping each other along the way.”
Ward was naturally buoyed by the manager’s recent words regarding the goalkeeping options at his disposal, while both Karius and Mignolet have welcomed the added competition since pre-season preparations began.
