Mignolet still learning trade

The 23-year-old Belgium international has played in all seven of

the the Black Cats’ Premier League games to date this season. It

has proved a difficult start to the campaign for both Mignolet and

Sunderland, but the former Sint-Truiden player is confident he has

more to offer. He told the Journal: “I’m still learning because

it’s only my second season and I hadn’t played 30 [Premier League]

games until the West Bromwich Albion game. “I just want to look to

myself, try and improve every day and work hard in training. Then

we will see what’s going to happen.”
