Following a string of impressive showings, Liverpool FC are set to recall Welsh ‘keeper Danny Ward six months in his loan spell at surprise Scottish title challengers Aberdeen.
Liverpool FC’s goalkeeper crisis appears to be deepening, with Adam Bogdan making recurring mistakes and Simon Mignolet struggling to be fit in time for the clash against Arsenal FC. This could be an opportunity for Danny Ward to seize the gauntlet.
Ward back at Liverpool FC
The Hungarian stopper was once again at fault for successive games against Exeter, prompting Liverpool FC boss Jurgen Klopp to recall Ward as per reports in BBC.
With Mignolet not earning rave reviews either, regardless of his injury status, it is likely that Klopp recalled the Welsh stopper to add competition to the Belgian.
The BBC report states:
“The 22-year-old’s final appearance for Aberdeen was in a 1-0 loss to Hearts in the Scottish Cup on Saturday. He was due to be at Pittodrie until the summer and has been an ever present in the first team, keeping 11 clean sheets in 29 appearances. However, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has decided to take him back to Anfield.”
