Simon Mignolet: “You may never give up as a goalkeeper"

Casper Nielsen won the Man of the Match trophy but Simon Mignolet excelled again with some nice saves. Big Si was again unbeatable.

“We know 0-1 is a tight lead and that was also the case", said Mignolet at the end. "They were very dangerous in the last ten minutes and created a few chances. Luckily I could again make some crucial saves which is why we can take the three points home at the end. Especially that attempt of Fabio Silva was very difficult. I thought I would be first to grab the ball but I quickly realized he would be faster. I could then, just in time, bring myself in a position in order to prevent him from scoring. You of course also need a bit of luck in such situations. You can never give up as a goalkeeper and then you can force luck. I am happy with that but the most important thing tonight is that we take the three points home. You may not forget that we went very deep last Wednesday, both physically and mentally. You have to be able to draw a line under that but that is more difficult for some guys than for others. We had to fight until the final whistle and you then sometimes also need a goalkeeper who is able to catch difficult balls." (FDC)
