Adam Bogdan's ridiculous error results in defeat for Wigan at Norwich City

Adam Bogdan joined Wigan on loan this summer in hope of gaining some regular first team football, after making just six appearances for Liverpool in his first season at Anfield.

It seems inevitable that the Hungary international's career with the Reds will come to an end sooner rather than later, given the fact that Jurgen Klopp brought in goalkeepers Loris Karius and Alex Manninger this summer, as back up to first choice 'keeper Simon Mignolet.

Bogdan has already made one more appearance this season than he did for the Reds throughout the entirety of last campaign, providing the Latics with some quality and experience between the posts - having made his name in the Premier League with Bolton Wanderers.

However, the reason why Klopp allowed the 28-year-old to go out on loan for this season was made clear on Tuesday night, as Wigan travelled to Carrow Road to face Norwich City.

It was a night when the visitors could not afford to make silly errors, with Wigan currently struggling towards the bottom of the table, while the Canaries bid for an immediate return to the Premier League is on course.

But despite Bogdan having played the same amount of games for Wigan this season as he did for Liverpool the whole of the previous campaign, clearly there was still some signs of rustiness, or lack of concentration, on Tuesday evening.

It took just three minutes for the Hungarian goalkeeper to make a fatal error, with Bodgan taking a heavy touch on a pass back. The alert and pacy Jacob Murphy stole the ball from the 'keeper's possession and made a simple tap in, to cash in on Bodgan's error.

Bogdan was considered a low-key acquisition when he arrived at Anfield last summer, and Liverpool fans are clearly glad the Hungarian is not at the club - for this season, at least.

The Liverpool loanee's mistake, ultimately, proved to be costly. Another strike from Murphy eight minutes later doubled Norwich's lead. But Jordi Gomez's late goal for Wigan wasn't enough, and had Bogdan avoided such a costly error, the newly-promoted Championship side's fortunes would have been somewhat different.

For the sake of the Hungarian, if he hopes to reignite his Liverpool career, he can only hope Klopp wasn't watching.
