Loris Karius has been in the spotlight in recent weeks.
It’s entirely understandable. Simon Mignolet had a good start to the season and made a number of keys saves before being dropped. Karius has now started three matches – one in the League Cup against Derby County and another two in the league against Hull City and Swansea City.
Let’s be clear — in those game he has NOT done anything wrong. But there have been a few criticisms over his unwillingness to come off his line and command his box, especially when the ball is in the air.
There is an argument that says Hull’s goal in our 5-1 win was preventable if we had come for the corner.
But Karius isn’t worried. He has dismissed any criticism and says it’s just a learning curve as he adapts to the Premier League style.
“The Premier League is more physical than the Bundesliga,” he said (Sky Sports).
“You don’t really see that in Germany that much, but that’s how they do it here—it’s no problem, you just have to adapt.
“But I’m not some schoolboy that never had to come out of his box before. I played a lot of games, so it’s not like nobody’s ever touched me in the box before.”
