Liverpool spell Adam Bogdan’s surname wrong on club store

Adam Bogdan might be the least glamorous of all Liverpool’s summer signings - but the Reds could have at least spelt his name right on their official website.

Liverpool were, on Monday night, selling personalised shirts with ‘Bogden 34’ rather than ‘Bogdan 34’ on the back of them - and this embarrassing mistake did not go unnoticed by one eagle-eyed Reds’ fan.

Liverpool have now corrected their mistake, although whether they managed to actually flog any ‘Bogden 34’ shirts is unclear.

Fortunately, the rest of Liverpool’s summer signings all have their names spelt correctly on the club’s official website.

Christian Benteke, who cost £32.5 million, takes centre stage - having been awarded the No. 9 shirt - and the Belgium international is flanked by Roberto Firmino and James Milner.

Danny ings and Nathaniel Clyne are next in the queue, and on the ends are youngster Joe Gomez and the aforementioned Bogdan.

Bogdan wants to become Liverpool's No. 1

Bogdan, who has been capped 19 times by Hungary, has his sights set on establishing himself as Liverpool’s number one goalkeeper this season.

“I would like to take this opportunity and play as many games as I possibly can, and be a No.1 'keeper for Liverpool,” Bogdan told the Reds’ official website last month. “How do I do that? I have to do it on the training ground first of all, I have to prove myself and prove to the manager that I'm able to do that.

“Then when I get the chance, I have to take it and play well. That's how it works.”

Bogdan is Liverpool's back-up option

Brendan Rodgers, though, appears to have signed Bogdan strictly as a back-up option for Simon Mignolet.

That Rodgers opted against handing the 27-year-old the vacant No. 1 shirt suggests the Liverpool boss is not convinced the Hungarian has what it takes to cement himself as first-choice at Anfield.

However, Mignolet did not enjoy the best of seasons last term and, unless his form improves at the start of the 2015-16 campaign, Bogdan could be presented with opportunities to prove his doubters wrong.

Liverpool need a top goalkeeper

Liverpool are arguably the weakest of any of their top-four rivals in the goalkeeper position.

Chelsea have the world-class Thibaut Courtois, Manchester City have Joe Hart, Manchester United - for the time being, at least - have the excellent David de Gea, while Arsenal now have Petr Cech in their ranks.

Liverpool’s failure to secure the services of a top keeper this summer could eventually come back to haunt Rodgers.
