Photo: Liverpool out-of-favour star opens coffee shop in hometown

iverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has opened a coffee shop in his hometown of Sint-Truiden in Belgium.

The former Sunderland shot-stopper has launched ‘TwentyTwo Coffee’ in homage to his shirt number with the Reds and the Belgium national team.

Mignolet has been away with his country on international duty but hasn’t featured in Belgium’s two qualifiers against Bosnia and Gibraltar.

Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois was in goal for both fixtures, and Roberto Martinez’s side took six points in impressive fashion.

They thumped Bosnia 4-0 on home soil before hitting six past Gibraltar, including the fastest goal in World Cup qualifying history by Christian Benteke.

Mignolet has also fallen down the pecking order at his club, with summer recruit Loris Karius taking his place as first-choice goalkeeper at Anfield.

Karius begun the season sidelined after sustaining an injury on the club’s pre-season tour to the US, but claimed the number one spot on his return to full fitness.

And the German will likely retain his place between the sticks when the Reds host bitter rivals on Monday Night Football next week.
