Simon Mignolet expresses his delight that Liverpool finished top of Europa League Group B
Simon Mignolet has expressed his delight after Liverpool finished top of Europa League Group B following a goalless draw with Sion.
The Reds struggled to create any clear-cut chances in Switzerland in their final group-stage games, although Divock Origi had a late chance but couldn’t guide his finish goalwards from close range.
Mignolet also made a save to deny Sion’s Ebenezer Assifuah in a game of few chances, as Liverpool maintained their unbeaten record in this season’s competition.
The 28-year-old Belgian goalkeeper, who moved to Liverpool from Sunderland in a £9m deal in 2014, took to Instagram to post a message following their close-fought win.
Mignolet wrote on her Instagram page: “Job well done, group winners ! #together #cleansheet #YNWA #SIOLIV #UEL”
Liverpool managed to keep their first clean sheet against Swiss opposition since April 1977 following their goalless stalemate.
The Reds join Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur and bitter rivals Manchester United in the Europa League last-32 draw next Monday.
